Katy66 Posted May 12, 2009 Share Posted May 12, 2009 Hi, I'm Katy a 43 year old wife and mother of a 6 year old daughter, whose husband was diagnosed the end of March with Stage III lung cancer. Last Monday, about three weeks into chemo and radiation, he began having vision problems. The MRI showed a lesion on his brain affecting the optical nerve. It is so small, had it not affected his sight they would not have found it. They immediately stopped chemo and began radiation to the brain as well as lung. The current plan is to radiation through the end of the month to both locations and then go back on chemo. We see the oncologist tomorrow. Although I'm very sorry that any of us have to be here, I'm glad to find this group. I'm also happy to learn that there are organizations focusing on research for the treatment and cure of this horrible cancer. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
