Hi, wondering anyone has experienced low sodium and it not be related to SCLC!!
My mum was diagnosed with SCLC stage 3 spread to lymph nodes, back in March 2017 after being admitted to hospital with low sodium (113) she had SIADH, which is associated with SCLC, started chemo in April and radiotherapy in May all treatment finished in September! And the sodium had returned to normal! Had a scan in October to be told the tumour in her lung had gone and lymph nodes returned to normal size. Was told to go and “enjoy” life and spend time with family and they would review her in January! She was scanned last Thursday (4th) and we get results on the 11th jan! But Friday Mum had some bloods done and got a phone call that evening to say her sodium is low and she needed to go to a&e. My thinking is that the cancer has started to rear it’s ugly face again, but I’m hoping someone on here has had a similar experience and it’s not the cancer.
She is currently on dalterparin for blood clots in spleen, kidney, heart!
Bispronol for blood pressure
Recently diagnosed with T2D and put in meteformin! The a&e doctor thinks nothing to do with the medication but he didn’t seem to know much about connection between SIADH and SCLC!! So frustrating I just want some hope!!
Sorry for the long post!!
