My Dad is 80. He is fairly healthy. He drives, gardens, shops. He was Dx with a 7cm tumor in left lung near his spine and behind his heart. Seems like it takes forever for the doctors to decide a real treatment plan. Radiation to tumor and mediastinum. The medical oncologist suggests just Chemo. He wants to die with dignity and would rather have 6 months of feeling ok rather than a year of hell getting treaments.
Does anyone know of anyone getting Chemo/ radiation at 80 years old?
