I have a few friends who have battled (and thankfully won) the fight against breast cancer. They have all been given the 'all clear' after having no recurrences after 5 years. What is the magic number of years NED for lung cancer patients to be given the 'you're cured nod'? Or, is there never a time when a lung cancer patient is considered 'cured'? If not, why does lung cancer have a different journey than other types of cancer? Anyway, just curious. Thanks!
I am stage 2b adenocarcinoma. I had a RLL VATS lobectomy Dec 9th and will begin adjuvent chemo shortly ... just as an FYI.
Thank you very much!
