My Mother has smoked for 60 years. On April 17th-09 she was diagnoised with lung cancer by CAT scan. We had several pulmonary docs look at it and they said the same thing. No treatment- no cure- one week to six months to live. She also has alzheimers. My Dad made her quit prior to cancer dx by about 1 month. She forgot she smoked most of the time. It was great. 10 weeks later she was crazy for a cigarette. She bugged us every hour of the day. The doctors say the damage has been done. My Dad and I feel if she smokes it will cut days off that six months or less. Does anyone have any experience with this? Plus we do not miss the second hand smoke. But we hate to have what time she has left just fighting over cigarettes all the time.
