@zeerj, here's some information about radiation pneumonitis https://cancer.ca/en/treatments/side-effects/radiation-pneumonitis

How are you doing? Is treatment with prednisone helping? Will you go ahead with surgery next week?

Thank you for the information. Prednisone definitely helps. This is the third time they put me on it. I’m concerned this will be a cycle for me. I decided to push surgery till December. Plastic surgeon wanted me weaned off medication. Pulmonologist and oncologists were with proceeding with it next week. I decided to let my lung heal and didn’t want to stop medication early. I’m so looking forward to put this behind me.
