My 47 year old husband was diagnosed on Memorial Day with Stage IV Non-Small Cell Adenocarnoma of the lung. It had metastized to the brain and he had an emergency crainectomy where the brain tumor was successfully removed. He has recovered from that surgery remarkably and has the most incredibly positive attitude. The PET scan tests came back yesterday and it has not spread to the lymph nodes, bones or elsewhere thus far and he is scheduled for a lobectomy on Tuesday morning to remove the tumor on the lung. He just knows he is going to beat this nightmare despite the oncologist telling us that he has a 2% chance to survive. He swears that he will be in that 2%. I want so badly to believe that he will make it; but I know that I also need to prepare myself for the alternative. Can ANYONE out there please tell me that they know, or are, a survivor of Stage IV NSCC? I'm desperate for hope.
Nutrition will play a crucial role in your husband's battle to survive lung cancer. Do as much research as you can in this area. Do a search using words like.....Beating Cancer with Nutrition. It's strongly believed that sugar both naturual and refined feeds cancer. I've also read several testimonials of former cancer patients who used a microbiotic diet to beat cancer. One such person is Janet E. Vitt, RN. This nurse also had lung cancer that spread throughout her body. Do a search. Knowlege is Power.
