After a long year from my husband's diagnosis april 1, 2010of IIIB lung cancer-tumor in each lung to May 17, 2011 when the surgeon said you are cancer free we don't need to see you anymore except for ct scans every 3 months and then spreading those out as time goes by. 6 cycles of chemo, 2 lobectomies- RUL and LLL, and an extra surgery to fix air leaks in the left lung, couple of collapsed lungs and finally we are on our way to a new normal. I didn't think we'd get there and know that the insidious beast still may be lurking out there. BUT right now I want to rejoice in the moment and keep moving forward. Thanks for all the hope and encouragement from this board. You gave me strength and info and courage for this battle. It's happy dance time!
