I’m glad for you! I will point out the first chemo you did didn’t work (hence recurrence, and in line with odds of 94% not working), the second on recurrence did, but the odds there are different (35% response rate, shrinking tumors that are met). I do think our bodies kill cancer cells routinely, but of course most with systemic cells can’t keep up, hence the overall dismal percentages for lung cancer. I haven’t really seen statistics on the latter, but assume it is 1-2%, who knows? (body killing remaining systemic or preventing from causing met. tumors without chemo after surgery)
