MalouDP Posted July 29, 2005 Share Posted July 29, 2005 Hello everyone it is a blessing to have a support group like this. I have been reading this site for the past 30 days and it lifts my spirits up everyday. My husband is 62 years old and was diagnosed with NSCLC stage 1B on Jan 15, 2005. After numerous test we had a wedge resection on March 16, 2005. He ended up in the hospital for 3 months due to infections and recurrent sepsis. He was on the vent for 40 days. He finally got home from the hospital on June 6. Needless to say he missed all the plans for chemo prevention six weeks after the surgery. We went to see the Oncologist on June 15, and took another PET. He is now diagnosed with Stage IV with mets to one node. He is scheduled to start chemo today. Carbo and Gemzar. He also has COPD before we found out about the cancer. I am devastated but I am praising God that he has given him a chance to fight this beast. Thank you all for your love and support and God Bless.
