My mom was diagnosed with lung cancer 2 weeks ago then last week they found 2 spots in her brain. She is currently taking dexametnason (which she hates). She starts whole brain radiation on Thursday for 15 days then sometime in early April will start chemo for the lung cancer. She is just 72 years old. We have been told this is terminal that at most she has maybe 1 year to 14 months. I am devastated and so afraid that she is going to suffer. Has anyone gone through this or had a loved one go through it? If so, can you tell me what to expect? I know that everyone is different but I would like an idea of what is coming. Thanks so much.
