I am a cancer doctor.

I'm glad she had a good surgery wedge resection of her low grade lung adenocarcinoma.

it sounds like it was a curative surgery and the margins were clean and she didn't need additional therapy

cure rate should be very very high, like 90% + cure rate at 5 years.

her doctors should have talked to you about the cure rates after a lung wedge resection.

I hope she doesn't smoke

let me know if you have other questions.
