indydorsey13 Posted November 7, 2009 Share Posted November 7, 2009 I am not sure if I introduced myself on this site in the past mo... so much going on....My husband was diagnosed with stage III-B lung cancer, inoperable due to the fact that it is behind his heart in his chest wall.... No treatment started yet....was told that his cancer is fast growing and aggressive....6 wks. have passed...scheduled for chemo & rad. last Wed...... had meeting with surgeon who gave us hope that he could do surgery !!!! ( Rad & Chemo. was canceled which was only scheduled to lessen his chest pain & cough ) Took our hope for surgery away 2 days later...no surgery.. He has had all the test, scans, oncology meeting, biopsies, this week: lung scan, pet scan, but no treatment started yet....Next appt. is on the 17th with Radiation & on to oncologist on the 20th.... Stressful is an under statement of this emotional roller coaster... Communication with anyone in similar situation greatly appreciated ( or have had some experience with Lung cancer )... send email !
