what the heck is pneumonitis????? - Wednesday, May 06, 2009 12:46 AM
Radiaiton and oncologists are studying cat scan from my emergency room visit in little beach town in Delaware -- I've posted on this under herceptin complications - looks like it is now a complication from the Herceptin on the heart and the radiation on the lungs.
Lawsy me -  I am not all that worried (have done too much of that - doesn't seem to help) - but am still short of breath - nurse told me when radiation Doc looked at copy of scait IF it is pneumnitis they treat it with steroids.
I've looked up some stuff - couldn't find a lot --anybody know anything?
thanks pals.
