Its nice to see Jillygirl on this site - makes me feel very much at home. I have now completed 4 x cycles of chemo and radio x 20. It was very aggressive treatment and I know the odds are poor - but I am hoping for at least a good shrinkage of the tumour. I have my contrast CT scan on Monday and the MacMillan Lung specialist nurse has promised to phone me with the results by the end of the week. I have no idea what I should expect from the treatment (cure, shrinkage etc) I am not sure that if it hasn't gone if they will offer more chemo. The next week will be the slowest one in my life!! I am trying to just live in the day, and not project - but it is hard to do after the last 6 month rollercoaster!! I am told the tumour is inoperable because of its location, it is also the size of a tennis ball, so I really don't know what to expect in the results! Is there anyone out there who can identify with a similar condition/history?? Thanks guys - and hope the New Year brings what you all most dearly want.
