My husband has EC T4 n1 this was in Jan 2009. Feb 2010 it has spread to his lungs . He is doing three rounds every three weeks of Carboplantin, They said 11 months, but he is not the average person (so a doctor said) cause he did not no smoke or drank. He is 57 years old. They say the best they can do is beat it down, hope it shrinks the tumors. I am at a loss for words, and not sure if I had the words I could spell them. He had his treatment in Ann Arbor Michigan, 130 miles away. We went to South West Mi cancer center but was not inpressed with the doctros there. So went back to Ann Arbor.Should we try to go to Anderson in Dallas Tx? From what I think I am understanding because they say no cure. That he has maybe a year. But I am so confused. And I don't know where to turn.When I try to ask questions I can not control the tears. Part of him is in deniel and the other part he is jsut given up. The closest support is 30 miles away. I am living a night mare and can only think what he is going threw So that adds to the saddiness I feel.. They say talk to some one , who my family run from the word cancer as if it was the something they can catch. We don't go to Church so have no support there . We don't get invited to things. So it is my him and I against the world. If that makes since. I am not educated in a way That I can express myself very well. I am so lonely and so scare. Sometimes I think If he died I should just go with him that I could never make it alone. Does anyone else feel this way? Have I just gone nuts?
