I realise that I have already sort of asked this in a previous thread, but just wanted to get a bit more information. My dad has a small lesion in his lung, with a single met in the brain. He has recently had gamma knife treatment on the brain lesion (surgery would not have been possible due to the location anyway). The drs are now trying to decide how to treat the lung lesion. If not for the brain met, he would have been staged at 1A. It seems to be coming down to surgery vs radiation - both with additional, though varied treatment (chemo?). He has been talked through both options (and had lung function tests) - but apparently not many patients are seen where he is at in this situation - and so he is now being referred elsewhere. It is obviously good that his lead dr (I think a respirologist, but also linked with oncology) wants to get him the best possible advice/treatment (he is in the UK, so is on the NHS). Anyway, he has an appt with another specialist next week (what with being dx abroad and various slow referrals and now this, there seem to have been a lot of delays...) - and I was just wondering if there is anything in particular that my dad should think about or ask during this appt?
I think I may have read somewhere on this website that a potential problem may be if another lesion appears during recovery from surgery - making it harder to treat. I'm not sure if there is anything else that should be considered??
