  1. Hello all...sorry it's been some time. A lot going on. So we found out he has extensive small cell lung cancer. It's in multiple regions now. He was given the option of chemo or hospice, he chose chemo. He wants to have more time with his grandchildren, 4 & 1. We don't know how long this might give him but he wanted to give it a try. He just started chemo this past week and he was trying to see if he is eligible for a clinical trial at our hospital. Right now he is in the hospital for breathing trouble related to COPD and hopefully he is able to go home by tomorrow. I really don't know what else to say but it is nice to talk to others who have gone through this struggle too. Still trying to take it all in. It's hard to wrap my head around the fact that my father is dying at an accelerated rate than the rest of us.
  2. Thank you. I will look into that website you mentioned. From what you're saying I hope they are wrong about the suspected diagnosis but he smoked for a long time. There's always a chance it's not I guess.
  3. Hello all! My father had a CT scan recently with many enlarged lymph nodes. On 6/11 (2 days after his birthday) he went to have a bronch done for lymph node biopsy. They are thinking SCLC. Waiting for a PET Scan to be scheduled and the results of the biopsy to return. It's nerve wracking. He's surprisingly upbeat that's more than I can say for us but I know what good a positive attitude can do for your health. Is anyone here from Pittsburgh, PA? we're looking for an oncologist, he didn't even see one after his bronch yesterday, which was upsetting. we want to see what his options are as fast a possible for obvious reasons. does anyone recommend any good Docs from the Pittsburgh area, and where you would go AGH or Hillman?? we need help!!!
