This is my first post here.
Today I saw my specialist for the first time. I've had all manner of tests to find a cause for my upset stomach and weight loss. He tells me I have almost certainly got an aggressive stage 4 lung cancer in one lung, spleen, adrenal gland and possibly in my larynx. He seems very keen on the idea of treating me with chemotherapy even though my symptoms are pretty moderate thus far. Before biopsy he suggests chemo will give me a 30% of living another year. My concern (aside from the idea of deciding treatment ahead of diagnosis) is that the extra few months I might get could be tainted by prolonged side effects. I've got quite poorly generally but I certainly don't feel terminally ill.
I don't fancy spending my last months asleep or puking but equally I'd quite like to live a bit longer than a few months. Are there treatments that won't lay me up for weeks?
