Like many of you with stage 4 nsclc, I have started chemo (4 treatments so far), but the Dr. said he would not do radiation because the amount of radiation he would have to do would be enough to kill me, but I see so many other people with stage 4 lung cancer and most of them seem to be getting some radiation treatment, does anyone know why I could not receive it? It seems with the pinpoint radiation treatments they have now they could treat some of it with radiation. Do you think a second opinion would be beneficial? Money, like usual, is a stumbling block, but this is my life I'm talking about, and I don't plan to go without a damn good fight.
