I have been diagnosed with an aggressive lung cancer for which I have already had 2 rounds of chemotherapy. It has shrunk significantly and now they want to add radiation in conjunction with the last 2 rounds of chemo. The radiation oncologist is worried about the increase in side effects of radiation due to scleroderma. She says there isn't a lot of information written about the subject. Can anyone give me anything? I fully intend to have the radiation because I have to get rid of the cancer but I do want to know other survivor stories. Thank you for your help.
