Following a diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer My husband has had 4 chemo treatments (they hoped to give six but stopped because he caught a chest infection). The mid point scan in Jan showed significant reduction. He then went on to have 12 radiotherapy sessions, which he finished about 5 weeks ago and is waiting to have another scan next week. He feels worse than before he started the treatment. We have not been offered any cancer slowing drugs since his diagnosis, he is only on morphine 45mg per day and gabapentin 3 times a day, all of which are for pain control. I don't understand why we are not being offered anything else to slow it down. Does anybody have any ideas it can't all be about money surely.
