Hello, Its nice to see there are sites like this for us to come to. I was diagnost with sclc limited back in October 2012 and have had 4 chemo treatments thus far and no radiation. Radiation wont be a part of my treatment as I have had it previously to my chest in my younger years as I battled and won stage 4 hodgkins at the age of 11. I am 46 now and faced with this issue which I remain very positive towards. I look forward to reading post here and hopfully being able to communicate with those of you here. I am available for anyone who would like to talk.
