jesslaa Posted December 28, 2016 Share Posted December 28, 2016 Hello everyone!I am so very grateful to have found this group after a few google searches. My mother was recently diagnosed with NSCLC and everything has felt quite surreal for the last several weeks. Reading through everybody's stories and information has provided me with much comfort and reassurance for the myriad of emotions I have been experiencing. My mum has been undergoing radiation for a grapefruit sized mass found on her lung for the last two weeks. She underwent her first 3 days of chemo (cysplatin) last week, and is so far only experiencing some insomnia and fatigue. She is scheduled to undergo radiation daily for the next two weeks, and has another three days of chemo scheduled during that time as well. I was told that a "staging" cannot be determined until six weeks after her final day of radiation. This puts us at the end February. Is this a common timeline? All those medical tv shows led me to believe that this information comes quite quickly. It's been strange living in "limbo" waiting for information which may dictate future plans. Thank you everyoneLove&light Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
