Dad was diagnosed with T4 lung tumour and no spread, this equates to stage 3A at the beginning of March. Since March dad has had two cycles of chemo which were really hard on him so he has decided not to have the 3rd & 4th cycle. Dad's oncologist has referred him now for radiotherapy but thinks the tumour is still a little big for radio to be most effective.
Dad has lost a lot of his confidence and feels he can't do anything - when he's pushed he definitely still can walk around, shower, dress himself etc but if not pushed he feels he can do nothing - depression a very real issue too.
Dr had been positive had he been fit for chemo of a relatively good outcome as tumour had shrunk 10% over the 2 cycles he did have.
Has anybody experience of moving to radiotherapy and how effective was this after reduced chemo cycles? Also has addressing the depression helped changed anybody's opinion in terms of treatment?
