I found out yesterday I have lung cancer,how do they treat that?

A: im pretty sure that you will have to go through kemo, i hope that it works out fine, andyou beat lung cancer I think the conventional treatment includes surgery and radiation. But I am told that changes in lifestyle have deeper consequences and can even revert the problem. Both surgery and radiation are *dangerous* and can in many cases compound the situation. Sometimes a cancer will go away, vanish of its own, if you see what I mean - without external interference. So before you make up your mind to follow the conventional path, stop and think to see what has caused the cancer in the first place and change it if you can. Was it your diet? Was it the habit

Reverting back to childlike behavior or childhood memories is a sign of her heading on towards a better place. Being in good spirits is a great sign of peace for herself. My advice to you is to spend every minute you can with her. This must be a very difficult time for you. You can help your Mom through this process. You have already contacted hospice and done what needs to be done. Now you need to spend as much time as you can with her. If she has tumor in her brain than that would explain her behavior.
