Had biopsy of enlarged lymph nodes in chest.

Cancer has recovered in chest nodes, apparently the clean up chemo I had after lung resection and the removal of the tumor....didn't do the job and some cells still there which are inboxes in chest..but nowhere else..so Dr recommends radiation 5weeks daily and low dose chemo 2x a week for 5 weeks.I am scared I know nothing about radiation and how it affects you..Anyone with similar  dx or that have had radiation and chemo after. Surgery. Please reply. Thank you

Hello Steve, I'm glad you picked this message board. I joined this when it was started. I haven't t posted here since '14. I'm still around goin on 8 years. I found a lot of folks here willing to share their experience and try to relate. I was lucky to get responses from a bunch of them,. I didn't feel so all alone, I found out that most of us, regardless of cancer type or stage, have a commonality that we can openly discuss. I'm sure you will have some folks who went through your situation. These new targeted therapies are a miracle and are saving lives today. None of that applied to my case and I got through it. You will too. Dude, how u doin? See ya in a few weeks. Hang in there alanrinhbg.
