I have been reading your posts for the last week or so to get positive thoughts for my Dad (60 years old)
He was diagnosed with advanced Lung cancer with mets to the brain and liver. The Left lung is completly blocked with cancer. He has seen the Oncologist today and has been told there is nothing they can do as there is no cure.. however they can give him low dose Radiation to the brain to help with the swelling, and that's it! They are saying prognosis of 'a few months' is the same with or witout treatment?..
Now after reading all the stories on here I am shocked to say the least that there is nothing they can do? Has anyone else been told this and is still here? Or anyone know of anyone who has lived through this? They are deciding at the moment whether to have the low dose radiation or not? But I would rather they get a second opinion but I dont want to give them false hope?....
