    Radiation (External radiation ): I had to stay on Tagrisso instead of doing a wash before radiation because my Onc was worried about a cancer flair up. The combo of Tagrisso and 5 treatments of photon radiation caused major internal mouth sores almost like my whole mouth was a bad sunburn.

      That is horrible. Im sorry. When I was on Iressand did radiation my rad onc and thoracic onc gave me the choice to hold my med or continue through radiation treatments. They said there wasnt enough evidence to say what would happen. I continued with the med. I experienced fatigue with brain fog and no other side effects.

    Hi Maureen, I’ve been going to Penn since 2016, I went there after leaving a local cancer hospital. Dr. Cory Langer is my second Onc from there. My first Onc was a cancer doctor specializing in all cancers he was a good Onc too but when I found out three months after my dx my cousin was diagnosed with LC too he was going to Dr Langer so I switched because he specializes in LC only.

    I am going to the 2018 National HOPE Summit!! It's a survivorship conference for people impacted by lung cancer- the largest gathering of lung cancer patient-survivors in the country! There will be amazing keynote speakers and world renowned lung cancer experts there. There are some seats left so register now before it closes. They can give you a grant to waive the registration fee if you need help. They also have a few travel grants available for patients attending for the first time. Learn more here www.lungevity.org/dchope and I hope to see you there!
