My dad has been diagnosed with NSCLC with Node involvement and has been through 7 weeks of radiation and chemo once a week. Then two rounds of taxol and carbo. Node has calcified and tumor has shrunk from 6cc. to 1.6 and now they are considering surgery. I thought that after you had radiation that they didn't like to do surgery because of recovery time. Anybody got any insight or been through this?
