If a person is stage 4 and becomes NED do you need to stay on chemo? I was stage 3 at the start but in Sept (post surgery) i had 7 additional lymph nodes light up. My lymph nodes are responding to the post op chemo, now just one of the seven is still light up on the recent PET scan. when I asked the oncologist how many more rounds i would need to go through he indicated I would be on chemo from now on with some breaks.
Can anyone tell me if I would happen to become NED and continued to have clean scans why would they continue treating with chemo. I realize I have a small chance of becoming NED but I'm trying to be positive
