karenlaureti Posted January 10, 2007 Share Posted January 10, 2007 Hi All, I found this site and wow, so many strong people! My Dad was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in the beginning of December. He was slurring and incoherent at times and we found out his sodium level was REALLY low from the tumor in his left lung. The tumor is inoperable, He started with Chemo mid December. Stopped through Christmas, now just started yesterday with radiation twice a day, and chemo once a day. Oh my goodness, how worried I am and it is so hard that he is in South Carolina and I am here in Philadelphia. If anyone has had this type of lung cancer and went through this treatment it would be great to hear from you. You never think something like this is going to happen to someone in your family. My Dad has smoked for years, quit right when he found out. I have not smoked in 8 days. Although it is hard at times, my goodness, when I think of what he is going through, and how strong he is. He has not been sick yet. Also taking steroids which I know keep him up at times. Anyway, God bless all of you and I pray for everyone.
