Good morning grateful one. I too am loosing my long love over small cell lung cancer he is in stage 4 but it has spread all over his body and to his brain. I almost lost him when we found out about the cancer. The doctors gave him a month to live but he walked out of the ICU after 30 days. It has been 8 long months and now he is going down hill really fast in my opinion. I only wish I had someone to talk to about what to expect with his attitude from now on. He was always a strong independent man and now he pushes me away every time I try to help him. Sometimes I feel like its me. I dont like the way my heart feels at the present time. I am 53 and my husband is 56. too young to die. Do you mind helping me understand?View Thread
My husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 small cell lung cancer that has spread throughout his body. This was in Aug 2012. We have now been going through this for the past 8 months and it doesn't get any easier. Between the Chemo and radiation things keep geting worse. Every case is different but our Doctor came right out and told us there is NO cure for Small Cell Lung cancer. Depending on the severity they can only control it.View Thread
