stoydc Posted April 8, 2004 Share Posted April 8, 2004 My dad has been basically symptom free for the past 5 months when he was first dx with LC stage 4. In less than 1 week, he has gotten so weak and gets short of breath just walking in the house. Prior to this, he was walking around the park! For 2 nights straight, he couldn't sleep and luckily last night he was able to sleep well after getting an rx for cough - tessalon and for sleep - ativan. My dad is usually so active and energetic and it is difficult for me so see him so tired and weak and for it to happen so quickly. Has anyone else experienced symptoms like this? He has started low dose chemo of carboplatin/taxotere today on a weekly basis and is still taking IRESSA. They took his O2 sat during the chemo treatment and since it was so low, ordered home O2 for him and a wheelchair. Looking for some encouragement or advice on what to expect. shirley Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
