: Hello My name is Sassie. If any one has any info on lung cancer and clinical radiation treatments or would just like to talk please email me. All responses will be answered. I am scared, it is my best friend, my mother.
Hello Sassie, In response to your post, my sister had Non-Small-Cell Lung cancer. The tumor in her right lung was about the size of an orange. She had 32 radiation treatments and no chemo. She was 63 yrs. old. Thr radiation treatments shrank the tumor but in the meantime it spread to her brain, bones, liver etc.It got so out of control, that the Dr. didn't even suggest chemo.They just told us to keep her pain free and as comfortable as possible. She got to the point where she couldn't even walk. She was diag.June 2, 1999 and passed away Nov. 1, 1999. Sassie everyone is different. Talk to your moms onc. and ask questions. My sisters tumor was inoperable. Feel free to email me if you would like to talk. >>> Ruth
