On Tuesday I am scheduled to begin a new road in this cancer journey. Five years ago I had a lumpectomy for breast cancer and while setting me up for follow up radiation they discovered a mass in my lung which turned out to be adenocarcinoma. Three months after the lumpectomy, I had a left upper lobectomy. Now a new mass is in that same lung. The only treatment options are surgery to remove the rest of the lung or stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). Never having had radiation therapy before, I am rather anxious though this seems the best course of action and the radiation oncologist assured me it is quite safe.
Does anyone have experience with this particular form of radiation that they're willing to share? Appreciate any input.
Thank you. Jean
