Re: Small lung cancer in 63 year old

Thanks for the tip. There is also a Tomotherapy site that give hope. Unfortunately, my mother is not a candidate for radiation. They usually only use that on limited stage, and Mom's is extensive.

She lost all her hair. We had a nice holiday, but it's so hard, sometimes I can't bear it.

Does anyone know anything about extreme breathlessness? She can't seem to catch her breath, but is in her second round of chemo and is otherwise feeling pretty good. I mean, I realize it's lung cancer, but the breathlessness has gotten worse and worse since she started treatment.

Thanks to all.
