Leslie3134 Posted March 23, 2009 Share Posted March 23, 2009 Hi! This is my first post here and I am really confused. My grandmother was diagnosed in January with NSCLC. They did a multiple tests including CT Scans and a Pet Scan. They found out the cancer spread to her liver and kidneys. She just had her 2nd Kemo treatment 2 weeks ago when she stated feeling sick and lost her voice. She went to the emergency room and they thought it was an infection. She was not getting better so she went to an ENT specialist who said something was wrong with her larynx. She ended up getting admitted to the hospital because she was dehydrated and falling over. Since she was there I have heard so many things of what is going on and I don't understand. I feel like one doctor says one thing and one says another. She has been there since Friday and I was with her some of the day Saturday and Sunday. Fortunately enough my brother is with her almost around the clock. Well, the latest is that she has a slight phenomena on the lung where the tumor is. Her lung has now so they collapsed and they went to go in and put a stent in but are not sure if they can. She also has a very scratchy voice because supposedly the tumor in her lung has spread the nerves and has now paralyzed her vocal cords. I feel that I just found out this horrible news and now she does not have much time left. I feel this is all I talk about and it consumes so much of me... She wants to stop the kemo and I don't think she will have long left... Has anyone gone through a simialr situation?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
