Hi I'm sorry that I can't help with this but someone will be along who may have had experience of this. x
I’m sorry to hear about your husband’s illness. I can’t answer your question myself but I’m sure lung specialists can give some information.
A very good centre for lung cancer is the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation in Liverpool. They have a helpline: 0800 358 7200 and a website: roycastle.org with advice available.
They’re very approachable and friendly, I know. I hope you feel able to contact them, it’s a charity I try to support. I came across them when my husband was in the Liverpool Heart and Lung Hospital with suspected lung cancer.
Good luck, Marie, to you and your husband.
My dad’s going for radiotherapy as to ill for chemo.
A lot depends on cancer and where it is and how well you are.
Thankyou breathezee xx
My sister had radiotherapy and chemo and there is no doubt she enjoyed an extra year plus which she would not have had otherwise. She was 85.
What do the doctors say? I sure hope it goes well and will pray for him that the treatments will be successful.
All went well, my husband had the radiotherapy 13 days and is now coughing well getting better by the day, and enjoyed his 88 birthday, we go out in the car every day, have a little walk, and have a coffee or glass of milk
That is very good to hear and appreciate you updating us.
