recently diagnosed non small cell lung cancer stage 3b
I am a 78 year old women recently diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer stage 3b (adenocarcinoma). My gene test came back negative so I do not qualify for pill therapy. Chemo and Radiation is my best treatment option giving me a 25% chance for cure. I was hoping there is someone on here who has gone through this protocol (hopefully closer to my age) and is willing to give me honest feed back on what to expect from radiation (side effects, pain, etc) and chemo. I have 3 choices…chemo/rad with immunotherapy for a year following, treat it like stage 4 with chemo and immunotherapy, or do nothing.
Thanks again and I look forward to any and all information.
