Granmaof3 Posted April 17, 2020 Share Posted April 17, 2020 I have joined the forum to get support and a better understanding of my husbands chronic illness. He was diagnosed 25th March with non small cell adenocarcinoma lung cancer. It is in the left lung T4 N2 Mo EGFR Negative PDL 1 Expression 20 % we have seen an Oncologist who has started treatment of radical radiotherapy 55gy in 20 fractions. Today was his 7th appointment. He has to wait 4 to 6 weeks to be scanned again. It said on his notes reassessment for future chemotherapy. There was a delay in his diagnosis as they thought it was lymphoma. His bronscophy was inclusive he had an EBUS followed by mediastinascophy he had internal bleeding and they removed the camera probe to quickly causing vocal chord paralysis. 2 weeks later he had a Vats procedure and suffered from surgical emphasimia. Also on his medical report if said not eligible for immunetheraphy as a first line treatment. But I clearly remember the oncologist saying radiotherapy let it settle rescan then a cocktail of 2 chemotherapy drugs and immunotherapy I had read up about keytruda and I asked if he could have that and was told yes. Now I am totally confused. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We are in the UK Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
