Posted by @fmshea4919 in Cancer, Feb 15, 2012

I have been diagnosed with limited small cell lung cancer.had radiation and chemo.
What are my stats for it returning?
Will be undergoing prophylactic brain radiation soon.
Is there any one I can discuss this with?

Appreciate any support or feedback on this disease.

I am the caretaker. My husband has limited small cell lung cancer. He has had one radiation treatment and 4 cycles of chemo. The doctor now wants to do prophylactic brain radiation next month. This morning I called his doctor and requested that they provide us with 2 or 3 names of patients who has had this type of treatment. I also requested that I get at least one name of a person who has refused treatment. I went to a lung cancer support group last week hoping to find someone at the meeting who had the treatment. I was not lucky. The group leader gave me a list of people who has attended the meetings to see if I could connect with someone. No luck there either. That is when we decided to call his doctor to get the information. I hope this suggestion helps. Please let us know how you are doing. Good Luck!
