You seem to be doing great with your workouts, impressive!!
I know KRAS can likely have different variants, and targeted therapies can be specific to stage, but I’m wondering if you’ve had a discussion with your oncologist about Lumakras (sotorasib), which was FDA approved for KRAS earlier this year. Possibly just something to keep in mind for the future if it’s needed. There is hope.
A good cry can be cleansing and level-setting for me, do it when you need to. This is scary stuff!
Take care, Lisa (ALK positive Stage IV, diagnosed 3/2020, so far so good!)
Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect, Jami (@jamineibs).
I Had my first cancer in 1997 and 10 years later my the first 3 of many multifocal carcinomas appeared. It is now 14 years later. The type is NSCLC (non-small cell lung cancer- adenocarcinoma). There is no staging because each nodule is considered a primary, just as your doctor described.
If I remember correctly those aches near your incision sites might be muscle contractions. My surgeon told me that when you cut into someone's chest the geography is disrupted and all the nerves need to find new pathways.
It sounds as if you have rebounded pretty well! We have a super lady!
I think that once the role of KRAS oncogene (A gene that is a mutated (changed) form of a gene involved in normal cell growth. Oncogenes may cause the growth of cancer cells. Mutations in genes that become oncogenes can be inherited or caused by being exposed to substances in the environment that cause cancer) in NSCLC becomes clear and its predictive and prognostic impact will help with targeted therapy.
So far I have had chemo (didn't help) and surgery, and proton and photon radiation. No targeted therapy has been used. My next CT is Nov. 21st.
I hope that you continue to feel good and that your healing is smooth.
