As most of you know, my husband was diagnosed june 2011 w/NSCLC; six months later his sister was diagnosed with leukemia (she died in August) ...my brother called today and told me his wife was just diagnosed with SCLC she also has bergers disease (caused by smoking ) and has had multiple amputations of her legs and fingers/hands. How can this be happening? I'm just numb for a lack of a better word.
My husband was hospitalized during the week of the 22nd because he got so sick from the taxotere and has since stopped working. His hair is falling out now, his skin is peeling, and he sleeps a lot. He goes back to the dr on the 7th for another treatment. While he was in the hospital they put a power port in to make getting treatments easier for him.
