Lung and Brain cancer within 8 months of each other I'm scared

Last September I was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer I went through 32 radiation treatments And 6 rounds of Chemo my mass was 10.5 cm by 3 cm I won't know if it's gone until 6 months because of scar tissue that they won't be able to tell until then just last week while getting a mri on the brain I also have 3 spots on my brain and am in the middle of my 10 radiations. I'm just wondering what are my chances of surviving. I'm scared I want answers and all the Dr's say is it looks great with no results

  • I'm so sorry to hear you're going through this.  I don't think anyone knows what your chance of surviving anything is except for the good Lord.  Put your faith in in God and He will carry you through this very difficult time.  I have stage 3B lung cancer and the doctors will not commit to a timeframe for me either.  I am trusting the Lord knows what's best for me and I accept His Will.  If you do not know Him as your personal Savior, I pray you will find someone who can lead you to the Lord today. He will give you the strength you need to face the road ahead.  God bless you.  

  • Thank you so much I am trying to give it to God which does help until some people just don't understand what's really the bigger picture is . The not knowing the time frame really sucks we can't tell right now too much scar tissue that's not what they said when we started on this So yes please pray hard for me radiation to the Brain really meshe's up every thing 

  • I am so sorry. Try and stay positive, as hard as that maybe, and make sure you do something for yourself each day.  You can speak to your doctor and ask him/her to be honest with you, but be prepared that they may not give you the info that you want.

  • Yeah I 

  • Yeah I think I already know the answer I mean this brutal on the brain I just want the truth Thanks for your response please pray for me and  God bless you and your family and friends 

  • I believe in miracles, hope you do too.
