HI,  DOCTORS,  


I HAVE LUNG CANCER AND IT SPREADS TO MY SPIRE T6 AND T7.   I'M GOING TO HAVE CYBERKNIFE RADIATION ON T6-7 .I HAVE A HARD TIME TO UNDERSTAND THE DOSAGE. I WAS TOLD THAT THERE ARE 3 DOSAGES:
 
1) 30 G--------------------DO10 TIMES  (EACH TIME 3G) -------------9 % RECURRENT
 
2) 8 G-------------------DO ONE TIME ONLY-----------------------------20 % RECURRENT
 
3) 16 G---------------DO ONE TIME ONLY---------------------------DON'T KNOW.THE PERCENTAGE RECURRENT, BUT IT IS STRONGEST
                                                                                     AND 5% PATIENTS MAY GET SIDE EFFECT ( HALF BODY PARALYZE)
 
PLEASE ADVICE ME WHICH ONE IS BETTER ? THANKS
 
SINCERELY,
