charlielou Posted June 26, 2004 Share Posted June 26, 2004 Hi everyone! I've just joined this community. My dad was dx with advanced SCLC in Jan2004 and was given approx 1 year. He has had 6 rounds of chemo (carboplatin & etopiside) which has appeared to have stopped the tumours growth and is not currently recieving any further treatment. I am struggling with this. It was easier when he was having chemo, it was like we were actually fighting this awful disease whereas now we are all just wating, waiting for it to rear its ugly head up somewhere else. I still find my dads diagnosis hard to take, I can't believe that they expect him to be gone so soon. He is so fit and well at the moment. He has just come back from Portugal after watching the football, he's off to Wimbledon next week to watch the tennis, he does diy, gardening etc. He's even going to come back to work after he comes back off holiday mid July! He's even said he hasn't felt this good in about 2 years. He put weight on during his chemo (25 lbs) and he hasn't got/had any breathing difficulties. I guess I just can't accept this Charlie x Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
