Hi all. My Mum (aged 66) has recently been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. Surgery isn't an option but perhaps Radiotherapy or Chemo will be. She sees the Oncoligist on Sept 26th. Thing is she is in pretty bad health anyway. Her lungs are both damaged, she has heart problems and has an ICD fitted. Any treatment would be to prolong her life I know. I'm thinking that she probably won't be able to have radiotherapy due to the ICD and wonder if she will even be able to have chemo due to the bad state of her heart and her general bad health. Am I being overly negative or do you think I'm right? I'm trying to prepare myself as much as possible so I can get my head around it and be there for my Mum and all our family.
Thank you for reading x
