January 15 had surgery to remove stage 1 nodule by removal of top right lobe. Non smoker, mutation was shown.Was removed robotically. Surgeon told me there was no need for chemo or radiation as it was all gone.about one year and 5 months later developed a severe pain in the back, to hospital and they did a cat scan,and nothing was visible.after several months of severe pain and testing from everything from kidney,gallbladder colonoscopy etc. nothing showed Chiropractor helped for about a day and pain, now unbearable still returned. Then came a follow up cat scan which showed a slight enlargement of tissue on the lining of my lung, which upon biopsy proved to be stage 1B, had radiation, and now on Tarceva since November. Have had every side effect that is listed. Every article I have read talks about Tarceva for far more advanced cancers. My doctor says that I am in a narrow margin that with Tarceva I can be completely cured. Most articles talk about it as holding off recurrences, but that it eventually comes back. I am confused, as this pill has reduced my quality of life greatly, and I would like to know if it is all for for nothing. Latest cat scan of nodule showed that the radiation made it disappear. It was five month from when the pain took me to the hospital until I finally had the radiation that finally stopped the unremitting pain that was nerve pain.
