      I am not sure of the protocol for lung cancer but I had some time off between radiation and the next round of chemo. Remember that radiation is cumulative and even though you are finished with treatments, it's still working. The time off for me gave me a chance to build up some endurance again and eat normally for a while to gain some wait. Enjoy your time off before starting in again!
