Diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer in June 2010, tumour in right lung, Intense treatment of Chemotherapy and radiotherapy which reduced tumour by 40 %, finished this in Oct 2010. Started on a trial of Stimuvax which finished early 2011 (START) After a bad infection and two weeks in hospital (Oct 2011) my right lung has collapsed, now just suffering from back pain and discomfort to the upper back area and spine some difficulty getting around.
The last scan I had was while I was in hospital. I see the Oncologist every three months and have an x ray which does not show anything with all the fluid and the collapse of the lung. this is the only maintance programme that i have so just wanted to know if anyone knows if this is normal. I have asked about another scan he thinks it would not achive anything but it would give peace of mind.
