Mom can't have surgery

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I posted a while back about my Mom not wanting surgery. Well today she

was told she didn't have that option. The tumor is in a "tube" that goes into her lung. They probably have to take the whole lung to get it out. Her other lung is not good enough to keep her going.

She really didn't want surgery so this almost relieved her because she didn't have to make that decision, it was made for her.

She is now to start radiation on Monday. The pulmonary guy said that he would not recomend chemo. He said not everyone would agree with that. But he did not think it would do any good for this kind of cancer. My mom has Stage 1 non small cell cancer and I also think it's the type of cancer that starts with a sq .

This is all so new to us so I am just wondering if anyone else has gone this same route and did they get good results.

Thank You,
