Cindykem Posted December 12, 2013 Share Posted December 12, 2013 Hello all! I came across this blog during my internet search on trying to help my husband cope with his new diagnosis. I am truly inspired by the stories and have let go of some of the anger I am feeling. My husband is 44 years old and was just diagnosed (12/5) with lung cancer, NSC Adenocarcinomas in the right lung. Our journey started with him being short of breath and not feeling well. I took him to the emergency room where the CT scan revealed he had pulmonary embolisms in both lungs and a tumor in his right lung. At this point he has only had a biopsy of the tumor in his right lung and we have been told his lymph nodes are enlarged in his chest. First doctors apt on 12/9/12 we were told it is inoperable (at this point) because there are several small masses on his left lung as well. We are waiting for the insurance company to approve the Pet scan which will be scheduled right away. His cancer has not been staged yet. He starts chemo (Carboplatin, Avastin, Alimta) on 12/19. We are devastated and scared not knowing what tomorrow will bring. We have 2 children (16 & 12). I have read that a positive attitude is half the battle. I really need suggestions on how to help my husband cope so he can physically and mentally prepare for the long road ahead. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
