    Hi Feyona, - me again. I don't have any advice regarding self-help, complimentary treatment, medications, etc. In my case, I went with what the doctors advised for my nsclc. I had concurrent chemo and radiation. I, too, was trashed by the sides, but they subsided when treatment was finished. I had 40% of my right lung removed four years ago, and have been cancer free since. My advice with "working" this forum is to ask whatever you need to know, and someone will probably respond. These people are great! Ernie
