Cndgrl Posted December 11, 2005 Share Posted December 11, 2005 Hi my name is Trish and we just found out my dad has NSCLC that has metastasized to his brain. He is stage IV and just getting ready to start his first radiation treatments for the brain lesions. Then in January he will be starting chemo. This has been really difficult for my family as he just turned 60 and is in great health. It is really strange as he has no real symptoms he only had a couple of episodes of strange lights in his vision and told mom who works at the hospital for a neurologist. Mom then told her doctor in passing and the neurologist brought him in that day for a checkup and we found the tumors in his brain and that they were secondary cancer. A few tests later we were told that he has a primary tumor in his right lung that is an area that is inoperable. I flew in to be here to help my parents as my mom and dad are having a difficult time with this. They live in Ottawa and I am out in San Jose. I am still in a state of disbelief that this is happening I keep hoping that all these doctors have made a mistake or that I’ll wake up and it will all be a dream.
