    I am very sorry to hear of your diagnosis. It is the same as mine. The good news is that there are many targeted therapies out there for you to try. I have been on two of them so far and once I got over some of the side effects, I actually started to feel normal. I am now on IV chemo with a pill. Best of wishes to you.

    Hello Patterson4318, I was diagnosed at 59 with the same thing. I was put on Gilotrif first thing thanks to the mutation and when that stopped working, I went into clinical trial with Tagrisso. Now that has stopped working and I am trying to decide which way to go now. There are some other clinical trials out there but the side effects look pretty bad. It was nice being able to take the pills and I had a very good quality of life doing it. No one would have ever guessed how sick I really was. Big tumors shrunk by 50% and small tumors disappeared. It was nice while it lasted.

    Hi Amhunt,
    If you have the EGFR mutation than you qualify for targeted therapy and that is great news. Being only Stage 2a, you may be lucky enough to have the targeted therapy shrink all of your cancel. I have Stage 4 and I had it shrink everything by half and some smaller ones disappeared all together. If they don't have targeted therapy options where you are at-find some place that does. You will be glad you did. Best Wishes
