I’ve been on same treatment same lung cancer but mine had spread. These treatments are giving me the best quality of life possible as I will not beat this. I’ve accepted it and living the best I can. I’m also on OxyContin which I take every 12 hours. The Mayo Clinic does scan every 3 months. My tumor was massive and 3 nodules. Tumor has shrunk in half and nodules have stayed the same. These treatments wear me out so right know I’m on 2 weeks rest (which means no treatments) feeling good and got energy back. The 23rd I will start my treatments again.
