I sit here and listen to my husband cough and choke. He's taking steroids, cough medicine, allergy medicines, and of course chemo. Nothing seems to help.
Just a month ago, the oncologist talked to my husband about buying enough time with this 2nd string chemo (taxol carboplatin) to be able to see "grandchildren" well we have none, so do the math.. My husband has 2-3 years?? How could that be?
How does anyone really know when you are close to the end? Not being able to eat solid food, not being able to breath without coughing half the day, those sure seem to me to be game enders to me, but what do I know, the doctor is still giving him chemo because he thinks there's hope. Fortunately my husband has a j tube, so his weight loss has been very slow.
Can someone help enlighten me/ (us? I'm sure I'm not the only one here with these questions.)
