My husband, who was diagnosed in March 2012 with sclc limited with a pleural effusion has now been told he is "in remission". His pleural effusion was drained and talced (VATS procedure). It proved to be non malignant. He is being advised to get PCI. My question is, what are the side effects and how long can he safely wait before undergoing this radiation to his brain. He has very mixed feelings about going ahead with this. Please advise. Thank you.
