My daddy will be 76 yrs old June 14th. He has just been diagnosed with Extensive Lung Cancer. They found 2 masses on his left lung and enlarged Lymph Nodes. He has already lost 22lbs, and is very very weak, and in so much pain. Hes getting worse everyday... Now hes complaining of alot of pain in his hips now. My heart is breaking so much for him. 3 wks ago, he was working, so much diffrent than he is now. He is breaking so fast! He is such a tough man. He has had 3 heart attacks, colon surgery, open heart bypass surgery, 2 hernia surgerys, and I guess I just thought he would recover from this to, but its not looking good. What can I do?View Thread
