My Dad , a non- smoker who was diagnosed last summer with stage iv lung cancer with pleural effusion, he has had that drained several times..been through chemo...and now we flew him across the country to be a part of a trial at John Hopkins in Baltimore. He was doing great at first...tumor was even shrinking. Today only THREE weeks later --he was told it has spread to his other lung....breaks my heart to hear him coughing so hard on the phone that he can hardly talk...I just do not understand. He is so tired, does not want to eat, has lost weight...is there hope?
