Barb1987 Posted February 16, 2017 Share Posted February 16, 2017 Hi, I'm new here and right now am feeling a bit overwhelmed and frightened. My husband was informed by the Oncologist last Wednesday that the cancer has spread via his blood to his lungs, the lymph nodes in the chest and lymph nodes under his armpits. He also has some fluid in 1 lung - the Oncologist said it could be because of the cancer. So he has secondary lung and lymphatic cancer. They will not offer chemotherapy as he is not well enough and have referred him to the care of Hospice (carers of people with a life-limiting illness) for pain management and anything else they can help with. While I appear to be holding it all together on the outside, I'm feeling quite hysterical inside and feel a bit helpless as to what to do with these feelings. I have 'burst out' a couple of times, which I'm told is not good for anyone under these circumstances but I simply don't know what to do with it all. Help and suggestions would be most welcomed. Thank you Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
