    I too have non small cell inoperable cancer. It's wrapped around my pulmonary artery.
    I am not an authority on the different treatments venues. I choose to trust the team I am using. I do not expect to be cured, but I look forward to feeling normal for a while once I've completed chemo.
    Who knows!
    Good luck
