I posted a while ago on my mums diagnosis of lung cancer stage 4 N1 M1
I just wanted to give an update on treatment to see if anyone has had similar and how they are doing really
Mum has been offered combination chemo and also immunotherapy every 3 weeks consisting of Pembrolizumab
Has anyone else had this combination and how were they with side effects ets?
We have just come back from a week in Devon mum was struggling slightly with pain relief she struggles to take tablets it’s not the cancer she has always struggled to swallow them so is taking oramorph and dissolvable anadin which I’m not sure is really working as she was in a lot of pain one day also asleep a lot and not really eating much it’s the first time I’ve really seen any of these symptoms she’s also struggling with being constipated has tried various things and it’s “all of nothing”
The oncologist has advised that there are bony mets in the spine and rib and multiple pulmonary lymph nodes affected
Just wanted to see if anyone has experienced the same and any advice on other pain relief such as patches liquid etc?
Thank you take care all
