    Finished chemo for non small cell adenocarcinoma of lung and need to decide whether to go for radiation.

    Decision Point

    We met with the radiation oncologist who read the latest scan showing that the 5 sessions of chemo dramatically reduced the cancer in the right upper lung. Would like to go on with radiation adding a little bit of chemo to make it more effectve. He shared all the bad effects that can happen which puts us off a bit. However they would like to keep the cancer shrunk back from the airways as compromising the airways would not be a pleasant end of life. Has anyone had experience, good or bad with going on with radiation?
