Several of us ovarian cancer survivors over 5 years without recurring differ in how we interrupt this study. Does it mean that if you survive 3 years you have a 48 chance of making 5 years and if you make 5 years, your chances of not recurring go to 98 percent?
OR
Does it mean if you survive 3 years you have a 48 chance of making 5 years and if you make 5 years you have a 38 percent chance of making another 3 years?
