First posting from worried caregiver


Recommended Posts

My 72 year old boyfriend just got diagnosed. First, he suffered through months of pneumonia. He's had one session of immunotherapy (too weak for chemo). He's so frail and has lost over 35 pounds, barely eats, etc. Now, on top of all this, he contracted Shingles!

If you are comfortable, you might share details about your boyfriend's diagnosis. Knowing his stage and type of lung cancer and his treatments may help our members to share their experience in treatment.

Shingles is very nasty indeed and combined with immunotherapy, he must feel horrible.

Stay the course.
