Mothership Posted April 11, 2009 Share Posted April 11, 2009 My husband diagnosed with SCLC limited Dec. 08 and has finished chemo and awaits radiation. He has had several hospitalizations after chemo. Now he is in hospital as result of a spontaneous pneumothorax where lung collapsed from a "bleb" bursting into chest cavity thus leaking air. We are hoping it will heal so he can get on with radiation. I am sole caregiver, trying to keep up good spirits and especially encourage him. Anyone out there had SCLC with COPD and emphysema? He quit smoking 20 years ago and controlled COPD with walking and exercise but the cancer knocked him over the edge and is having problem recovering. He is a very courageous man and loving father. I want to smile more and perk him up. Anyone willing to assist with some advice? Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
