I was diagnosed with extensive small cell lung cancer in Nov. 2010. I had both chemo and radiation and for a while things were better. Lately, symptoms have worsened. I have a very loving family and both them and I would like to know what to expect when the end of the road nears. Can anyone answer the question as to what symptoms/conditions were present when their loved ones were in the last month of their lives? Thank you so much.View Thread
So sorry to hear about your husband but thank you so much for sharing the information. I was originally told I had small cell on October 26th,2010 and a biopsy on Nov 6th 2010, which confirmed the diagnosis. The chemo and radiation seems to have stemmed the growths for a while, but lately I"m feeling a lot worse. I had a bunch of tests as I was in the hospital for 3 days because my breathing got so bad, but they said it was just a bit of liquid in the lungs. So again, thank you so much for your informationView Thread
