I need an advice about therapy

Iressa and x-ray therapy.
I am 74. I have a non small cell lung carcinoma (Adenocarcinoma) stage 3B.(T3N3M0) EGFR prositive. I use Iressa tablets for eight months.Tumor decreased from 10.5 to 4.2 cm. Now they want to apply X-Ray therapy (Gama rays). Doctors suggest a pause with Iressa. Is it correct? If yes, how long should this pause will be? Only during the X-Ray therapy (Five days X-Ray, then a month pause and then Five days X ray again?) Should I stop taking Iressa only during these ten days of receiving X-Ray or all the time of X-ray treatment?
Please excuse my poor English. Thank you for answer in advance.
