hello out there. I hope that someone can shed some light on what I am going throught at this point. I myself do not have cancer, but my Uncle Manual who I am very close has just been told the he does. This this the 3rd time, and this cancer is munch more aggressive that the types in the past.
He is not in the best of health to begin with, and then the doctors have told him that he has stage 3 cancer. And with more dental surgery, radiation and Chemo he will have a 60% chance at beating the cancer. He is only in his early 50's and weighs appx. 110lbs. some of the other doctors have given him the impression that the cancer treatment will do more harm than good, being that he is in such a weak state. So he has decided against the treatment.
As his family we all support his decision. He is a good man that has done a lot of good in this lifetime. He has the will power and heart to keep on living. He says " I ain't done yet, I still got lots to do here, I ain't gonna die today" Keep in mind he is a good ol' counrty man that would give any one a helping hand. He has faith that God will give him the gas to get to where ever he needs to get. God has answered a lot of our prayers, and given us all a lot of blessings. Sometimes I think that God is the only one that has gotten him through the battles in the past. I think God has given the knowledge to those in the medical profession to help along the way as well.
Sorry, I could go on forever about my uncle. But ultimatly, what I wanted to know is are there any others out there that decided to not get the treatment and what was the outcome. Please any one let me know any thing you can.
