Hi all , just wondering if anyone has been told by their consultants/oncologis that there’s nothing much they can do , further chemotherapy its not going to make any difference to the outcome, you”re bascially at the end of live care and if whenever you”re going to end up in intensive care or not breathing ,emgergence team are not going to resucitate you ! i find this so cruel and horrible to take in .is this how NHS works ?
I feel my husband has been through so much and he is still fighting on . despite trying target therapy at the beginning and four different kind of chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatment and recently had 10 intensive round of WBR all this in the past two and half years since diagnosed with NSCLC stage 4 lung cancer and in the last six month with progression of brain met.
He was told he only had months to live back in January 2020 and again told less than 6 months in Nov 2021 and again in March 2022 . We’ve been told his prognosis once too many times , i find it hard to belief when its the right time to believed them .can consultants really predict a patients prognosis ?
I”ve had mixed feelings in the past week ,not sure what to think going forward , doctors are suggesting to us and to hubby whether he wants to carry on with more chemotherapy or just treat whatever symptoms the body produces .
anyone in the same situation please can give me some advise what choice have we got ? Thank you , God blesses 🙏
