Does anyone have any experience with radiation induce pleuritis
The oncologist considered this would be a short term issue but the damage is increasing.
No explanation has been forthcoming or possible treatment/management offered.
Radiation was 6 Gy - on one occasion twice in six hours!
In spite of all the radiation the dysphagia continues, it is yet unknown if this is residual tumour or inflammatory radiation damage. All that I can say is the original disease has been expanded to include multiple problems extending to severe vision loss several being just as life shortening/threatening.
I am left wondering if Eric's way would have been a better option given hubby was inoperable
