Hello to all of you Warriors, Caregivers, and SURVIVORS! I am from the Ovarian Cancer discussion board, but have a question for a friend of mine.
Her husband was just diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer, mets to the liver. Much fluid around the lungs which they continue to drain. They just did a surgical procedure to minimize the fluid around the lungs. He has had one chemotherapy treatment, and will have another every three weeks for a total of four. Of course, they are not giving him much hope at this point. What's disturbing is that he was just given a clean bill of health barely 4 weeks prior to this diagnosis. The only reason it was discovered is that he developed 'bronchitis', had difficulty breathing, and went to the emergency room.
He is a non-smoker, and as I mentioned, was generally healthy. According to his physician, people at 61 are not typically this 'perfect'. Any insight you can offer will be helpful. Of course, my prayers continue for both of them, but if there's something else I can help them with, let me know. Though we are located about 220 miles apart, I want to be able to do something.
My prayers to all of you.
