[QUOTE=alison hamilton]My husband was Stage 111 but with 11 out of 18 lymph nodes involved. He is much older but is doing well. Each day is a blessing.[/QUOTE]
Hi Alison:
Sidenote question for you... What was your husband's TNM Staging... That we can convert for you. I think he's a Stage 3C like me. It helps clarify when talking about all this stuff, as to whether there was nodal involvement. I was T3N2M0. Because there is a big difference from a Stage 3 to a 3C. Just wondering for clarification.

[I]The TNM system is based on the extent of the tumor (T), the extent of spread to the lymph nodes (N), and the presence of metastasis (M). A number is added to each letter to indicate the size or extent of the tumor and the extent of spread.

Primary Tumor (T)
TX Primary tumor cannot be evaluated
T0 No evidence of primary tumor
Tis Carcinoma in situ (early cancer that has not spread to neighboring tissue)
T1, T2, T3, T4 Size and/or extent of the primary tumor

Regional Lymph Nodes (N)
NX Regional lymph nodes cannot be evaluated
N0 No regional lymph node involvement (no cancer found in the lymph nodes)
N1, N2, N3 Involvement of regional lymph nodes (number and/or extent of spread)

Distant Metastasis (M)
MX Distant metastasis cannot be evaluated
M0 No distant metastasis (cancer has not spread to other parts of the body)
M1 Distant metastasis (cancer has spread to distant parts of the body)[/I]

Thanks. Hope you are both doing well. I will pray for NO Hurricane season this year!
~Love~
