It was suggested to me that I check out CancerGrace.org to learn about my diagnosis of NSCLC Stage III so I did.
After reading one of Dr. West's posts on lymph node involvement, it was clear that when mediastinal lymph nodes appear normal but during surgery test positive for microscopic cancer cells, a 5-year survival is out of the question. This means my doctors have been lying to me.
I can't function now and don't trust my doctors because I have asked about my prognosis many times and never was I told treatment would be useless. Not sure what my point was in posting this but I now feel hopeless and have wasted time with useless treatments.
