Hi my name is Amy and 7 years ago I was diagnosed with renal cancer. I had my left kidney removed and it's been a bumpy road but here I am good for the last 18 months until June of last year when my husband of 23 years was diagnosed with advanced small cell lung cancer. After much googling I found this and if I am wrong for posting here please be kind and redirect me and if you know where I should go let me know. My beloved is declining by the day and I am struggling big time. Although we've been married 23 years our history goes way back to when I was 16. I am not coping well behind his back and i am looking for a place to come. Thank you for taking the time to read this and responding

also lost my mom to lung cancer-not small cell and my husbands mom was lost to the same. This damned disease has been prominent in both our lives-it actually re-introduced me to my husband as I was living out of state at the time and decided to move home when my mother was diagnose. She always said the best thing about her cancer was that it brought my husband and I back together and the same cancer is what is going to tear us apart

Is your husband receiving treatment? Small cell cancer is one of the most treatable. I have Stage 4, small cell lung cancer that I had in remission for 6 months. I was just diagnosed with a lesion on my adrenaline gland and will begin radiation treatments right away. My Oncologist feels very confident that we can quickly knock this down.  Meanwhile, I remain on immunotherapy.

This may be something very simple but it may be a side effect of your treatment.  Please let us know what you learn.

So sorry to hear that. I am in the exact same position. How have you been coping? What do you do day to day to make it through?

Hi amy. Have stage 3. Is there anyone you can talk to/ share concerns with? This sounds like you are going it alone. Try to take a little time for yourself each day doing something you enjoy. Sounds simple but it works for me. Best of luck

Hi I'm new here. My husband has extensive small cell lung cancer. He has had 2 cycles of cystaplatin the second didnt work and immunotherapy that didn't work. We have now been told that the next line is cav or topotan but been told that would probably not work either. so now we have been left with nothing!!! Anyone tried anything that has worked I'm not ready to lose him.
