shaw324 Posted March 7, 2006 Share Posted March 7, 2006 Hi my name is Lisa, My father was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Lung Cancer on Jan 5 of this year. The Dr's said he had stage 1a lung cancer. A small tumor in his lower lobe of his left lung. After biopy's and a pet scan they said his best chance was to have the tumor removed with surgery. On Feb 15 the surgury was preformed only to find out that he had more cancer in him then they thought. He had two tumors in his lung and his lymph notes in his lung and on the outside of his lungs were infected. We are going on three weeks tomorrow and the chest tube is still in him from the drainage from surgury.He is really weak. They said he is in stage 3b now. They want him to do chemo and radiation together. As soon as possible. He is having a hard time bouncing back from the surgery. His lungs are not healthy. Im scared what chemo and radiation will do to his body. He is not sure if he is even going to do it. Im so angry scared and confused. He is my world. Im trying to be stong for him but it is so hard. This is all so new to me and I don't know much about it or the treatments. I just don't know the right answers to tell him. He is so unsure of the chemo and radiation and if he is strong enough to do it. When Im not with him I find myself on my computer searching for answers Im not even sure I can find.
