carls Posted August 8, 2005 Share Posted August 8, 2005 I would like to sincerely thank everyone here for their support, encouragement and advice. Unfortunately my father lost his fight 3 weeks ago but this site was a tremendous help to all of us. I would like to offer the following adivce: I encourage everyone to seek a second opinion. we never had the chance to do so with my father because when he was first diagnosed he was in too much pain to be taken anywhere (we wanted to go to the states). we kept hoping there would be a better time to go but that time never came. when i finally sent his file to MD Anderson they called me back and informed me there was nothing left they could do. however, from that brief converstation we had we learned that there were specialists who deal with neuro-endocrine lung cancer which is what my father had. when we looked on the web we learned that this cancer was very rare and he also had non small cell, large cell which was even more rare for this type of lung cacner. I wish we had gone to the states earlier, as it now seems that there is a small possibility that the cancer started in the adrenal gland and not the lung. anyway, thank you all for your help and please seek second opinions when ever possible.
