I'm writing this in regards to my 43 year old wife, who has stage 3a non-small cell lung cancer.She had a 3cm mass on her lower right lobe and one of her lymp-nodes by her esophagus was cancerous. She's had radiation and chemo and then surgery was performed to remove the lower right lobe of her lung. At that time they also removed the bad lymp-node and some more lymp glands in the area where the cancer was. The biopsy came back that two other lymp nodes where cancerous. So now were just finshing post op chemo.
Now here's the question that were not sure what to do. The doctors offered us a trial to do brain radiation to hopfully prevent the cancer from possibly spreading to the brain. Their not saying that it is there.It's some scary stuff with all the side effects they throw at you that could happen. We just don't know whether to have the radation done or not.
Has anyone here had this kind of radiation done before??
Any feed back on this would be greatly appreciated.
