I was diagnosed with Lung cancer 6/1/2010 which spread to the brain, I had Cyber Knife treatments for the brain & lung lesions. The brain tumor is gone. The initial lung tumor is now gone, but my last CT scan showed 2 spots on my lung. Doc said they are too small to biopsy now. I get MRI brain scan & full body CT scans every 3-6 months. I feel OK except for back pain which I had previous to the cancer diagnosis. Has anyone here had Cyber Knife & what was your experience?View Thread
I think living life like a Zombie is not worth the treatment. I am 68 yrs old and have been diagnosed with lung and brain cancer 5 months ago. If having Chemo makes me sick and zombie like, I'd rather forgo the treatment even if it gives me more time. I'd rather have less time but more quality time. Just keep me pain free as much as possible. When it's time for me to go, I'll go on my own terms. My husband and I have been married 45 great fun years, I'm happy with that time. I know it is hard but we all have to go sometime one way or another.Some of us just know how and when.View Thread
