HI my mum finally starts her radiotherpy next tuesday. I am really worried about her, as she has got so thin I wonder how the rdiotherpy will affect her. I think that the hospital will be  giving her radiotherpy to her right lung (bottom) where tumour is andchest wall where it has mets to. She is going to have it twice a week for 3 weeks. We then have to consider if chemo is necessary.

It is so hard seeing the peson you love suffer in such a way.I can't really speak to my family about the indepth treatment as the are devasted too

i sometimes find it really hard.....

Hi Sloughi, I have upper left lobe cancer and had 35 (5 days a week for 7 weeks) radiation treatments. I came out of it alright. I had lots of pain in my throat and my back was burned. As long as you stay ahead of the radiation burns it should be ok. I used aquafor and aloe vera 100% gel on my burns. Good luck and hang in there. God bless you...
