Need to Decide re: type of radiation for tumor


Recommended Posts

I am NSCLC stage IV and will be having a tumor removed from iliac very soon. I am considering ablation; 10 treatments of conventional radiation; high dose focused radiation over 2-3 days; and, low on my list, chemo again. I am just becoming familiar with these options -- most of which I learned from Lungevity (!) and its bloggers, and need some input, comments, knowledge -- anything that anyone's got. Also, I've heard of "CyberKnife" and am wondering if that is just a form of high-dose that can be done by other brands. I am very grateful for all I learn on these blogs. Thanks for being here!!

(i think i also posted this at 'radiation treatment' forum?)
