Hi all I'm Maggie and I'm 55. I have been undergoing investigations for increased breathlessness over the last couple of months. I was diagnosed with COPD in November last year and thought this was just not very well controlled but no I have stage 3A squamous non small cell lung cancer in my left lung. Had hope to have surgery but further tests showed that one of the lymph nodes is also involved. Saw my Consultant today and she has recommended a very rigorous treatment plan of chemo and radio therapies to be given together for four weeks with weekends being treatment free. Which to be honest sounds a bit brutal but she is hopeful that it might cure this cancer.
I just wanted to ask if anyone here has had this treatment regime and if so how did they manage with it??
I would be very grateful for any information or tips as I believe that forewarned is forearmed!!
Hope you are all feeling as well as you can.
