SharKats Posted May 10, 2004 Share Posted May 10, 2004 I saw my onc this past Friday and she told me that if I didn't have radiation within the next month my tumor will be back as big and bulky as it was initially. (It was a big one blocking most of the airway on my right lung). I think she said this because my last lung scan said "non-specific nodular density" at about the original site. I am terrified of radiation - from what I've read it's not going to "cure" small cell and that it is mainly used for pallative treatment. I was hoping to get some feedback from those of you who have gone through chemo and then radiation. Would you mind sharing your experience with me, briefly, i.e., are you glad you had it, did it help you, did the effects really harm your quality of life? Thanks for any info you can give me.
