Adenocarcinoma Lung Cancer

I have recently a few months ago been diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma on my left and right lung. So far it hasn't progressed to other organs but the doctor says that chemotherapy isn't an option now. Right now I'm on hospice, but I would like to know more about Adenocarcinoma of the lung. Are there any promising treatments out there? Can anyone tell me their experiences with this type of lung cancer?

E-mail me at carriek@oswego.net or respond here.

Has your docter tried Iressa and Tarceva which are supposed to be more effective for Adenocarcinoma.
