Just feeling a little down so thought I would share my fears. My husband was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in June which has spread to his bones. He has a very unstable bone in his neck so was given 5 doses of radiotherapy. This gave him terrible side effects to his mouth and throat which still haven't cleared. He finds it difficult to eat and has lost 2.5 stones. He has also had one dose of chemo which put him in hospital with chronic diarrhoea and neutropenic sepsis. We are seeing his oncologist on Tuesday and both he and my husband say no more chemo. I know that I have to support my husband in whatever he decides but I am scared about his future without treatment I know that the chemo was palliative but what else can they use to prolong his life. Thanks for reading this.
