2 Years NED

My IL sugery was 2 years ago at MD Anderson. I was dx at stage III. Had preop chemo/rad, then the surgery. I am at the moment doing very well with NED.

Just remember, always get you a second opinion if you are not comfortable. My local oncologist told me there was not a lot that could be done other than chemo. MD Anderson restaged at stage III with only 1 node involved. At surgery, no evidence of tumor was found.

I now work again full-time, eat what I want, and do any thing physical like before. I know I am not out of the woods yet, but I am going on with life like it never happened.

I pray for the one's that are fighting this disease and ask that you be strong and fight it with your best.

Hi firechief,

Congratulations on your superb recovery. It is really heartening to see Stage III dx do this.

Congrats also to Rick and Jim.

I had my 2 year all clear yesterday - as you say it feels great to to be getting back to doing loads of things. And to know that all the little problems are just little problems, of small consequence.

Stay healthy. All the best,

Sue
