I am new to this group. I have been reading some of your stories and they are encouraging. My boyfriend was diagnoised with NSLC approx. 6 weeks ago. He has a 8 cc tumor on the lung that has spread to the treacha and the brain (4 spots on the brain)surgery is not an option. He is currently undergoing chemo & radiation (radiation aggressive to the lungs, neck & brain). Chemo was started with Taxol & Carboplatin and was changed to Cisplatin which seems to be helping reduce the tumor on the treacha. Needless to say he is extremely sick he has 2 1/2 weeks more of radiation to go. I would love to hear from people going through similar situation.
