06211219 Posted January 24, 2019 Share Posted January 24, 2019 My husband is a fire fighter was just diagnosed in September - small cell lung cancer extensive stage - 7 brain mets, had two removed because they were impeding on his brain stem. Has finished chemo 1/4 (Carbo Etopiside). Now he is on Tecentriq which was for bladder cancer then NSCLC - now they are giving it to SCLC. It's not a "wonder" drug as some have professed. In a limited amount of patients it prolonged their life by 2 months. I have to tell you - while I appreciate all of the positivity I see on here - it is bothersome that people aren't honest or or realistic. I have been searching for a forum to help get things off my chest - and every post I read it - everything will be ok. I 100% do not believe that. You can not survive brain mets. Period. He was given a year - and that's all I think about. I don't want to hear it's going to be okay. I want to hear that sucks. Sorry I don't mean to be disrespectful.
