    So I'm supposed to wait until I have symptoms? I don't think so.

    Hmm there are two categories of lung cancer, small cell or not, not being 80-85% of the cases. If the not, the most common accounts for 40% of the cases I think I read. Varying prognoses associated with them, as well as stage 4 A vs B.

    I think I’d call up the onocologist and clarify... can make a big difference on the timeline.

    Ha. They don't take phone calls, at least in my case. They barely talk to you at all. Doctors suck.

    No, you're supposed to enjoy and relish the time you have left. Not poison your entire body with chemo just to add a bit of time that you'll likely spend vomiting in agony while watching your hair fall out.
