In brief: Depends on stage

At md anderson, patients who get chemo, radiation, and surgery may survive for a long time (5-7 yrs), depending on lymph node status.
With chemo before and after surgery (magic trial) people live around two years. With chemo radiation after surgery (macdonald regimen) survival is less than two years. These are only statistical results, many other features contribute to prognosis.

In brief: Unknown

I do not have enough information.
Depends on the success of the surgery to remove all disease and if all the lymph nodes tested were benign. Earlier stage cancers have better success rates.
