Hi there. My mother (former smoker - 25 years ago) is only 55 and has been diagnosed with BAC. I do not know of the mutations. Essentially at this time her left lung is 100% affected and her right lung is 25% affected. She has been told that traditional IV chemotherapy or radiation would not be at all effective, and thus she is going on an oral chemotherapy drug. She was diagnosed on Aug 1st, but does not have an oncologist yet (don't get me started).
She has been told that lung transplant would not be considered. I understand some of the reasons for that, but also understand that there are rare circumstances wherein it might be considered. My mother would like to know if there are any "alternative" treatments or lifestyle changes that she could make that might improve her quality of life as long as possible. She has been told that she is terminal and has 1-5 yrs left. On a side note, she is chinese. I only mention because we have been told that this has some prevalence.
Thanks so much. Appreciate any info....or even well wishes.
