Cdbar Posted February 6, 2021 Share Posted February 6, 2021 Hi, everyone, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 NSCL cancer in Nov, 2020, with Mets to brain and spine. (I’m 75 and pretty healthy). My first treatment in late December was Gamma Knife Surgery to slow the small tumors in my brain. Then, while waiting on results of blood biopsy for genetics, I was given 10 days radiation to my lower spine to stop the pain there. It worked well. After that it was found that I qualified for targeted chemo, and am now taking Tagrisso. Just a little nausea and diarrhea. Have a great oncologist, who tells me only info that I need and refuses to speculate. That’s important for me, though at first I was frustrated. I am tired a lot, and don’t know whether to expect that to wear off or remain. I’m retired, so it’s not like I have to get up and go to work. Very glad to find you all!
