Denise G Posted March 22, 2017 Share Posted March 22, 2017 Hi, I'm new to your group. I'm a 74 yr. old female with COPD. I've just been diagnosed with Stage 1A Squamous NSCLC. Because of the COPD and lung function tests, I'm not a candidate for lung surgery. Just had a brain MRI yesterday as a precaution; thank goodness no evidence of cancer anywhere but in my lung. My radiation oncologist has mapped out a method of treatment for me: radiation 3 days a week for 10 sessions. Hopefully this will help my situation. I've read everything I can on my condition and I'm hopeful for a good outcome. I've also read all the possible side effects from the radiation, and I just have to wait and see how it effects me personally. I remain optimistic about my cancer.
