    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Had to quit the chemo after three sessions of three days in a row as I would end up in the hospital very ill after every session. Last time I had to have emergency surgery of the artery in my neck above my heart so they could get 4 pints of blood into me immediately.

    Easy to Do: Not Specified
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree

    Decision Point

    I was asked to go in for radiation for two weeks to keep from getting a Brain Tumor after treatments for lung cancer.

    Clinical Trial

    Has anyone felt that clinical trials were helpful with lung cancer?
