Feeling deflated and lost

Hi all my dad was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer 12 months ago this has since spread to his stomach and is now classed as very aggressive they tried a second course if chemo (cav) but the tumours in his tummy were to severe and unresponsive so no further treatment given, yesterday evening he was rushed to resuss and now has pneumonia, blood clots and worrys over liver function docs have said to get people who want to see him in but asked him about a dnr he's now in a state incase he arrests now docs have said he could come through I just want an honest experience of what I could be looking at time wise is anyone in a similar situation? He's only 59.

Hi Smoss01, I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I don't know if anyone can give you any ideas of timescales, even your dad's doctors, as everyone will respond differently. Do you have anyone who can help to support you and your dad, perhaps family or McMillan nurse. I hope you get some help and advice.

Sincerely Rab


Hi there,

I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad.

Rabbie is right in that it can be impossible to guess on timescales, even for experienced medics.

The most important things are that your Dad is comfortable and he his loved ones around him.

Thinking of you, and your family.
