Re: We Need Help!
Laura, my fiance was diagnosed with stage 3 b lung cancer, they offered chemo but didnt feel he would qualify for any surgerys....... then 6 months latter they (2 doctors) agreed it was stage 3 a...he had surgery to remove the shrunken tumor.. and it had metasitsized to his lymph nodes. Now he will restart chemo for another round to kill any "seeds'.... So go figure, we can only do what we can even doctors get baffled from this disease, since all have so many variables. I hope you will consider reading up on some nutritional supplements to help him regain some energy to enjoy what ever time he has. The more I read the more I see many people never die from the cancer itself, but from malnutrition related to it, and the body being so depleted it allows for different "bugs" to gain control. And as I see from others letters I have to agree, at somepoint we realise we are powerless over this, and Gods will and timming WILL be carried out regaurdless. Do take care of you, and hospice is a great source of info and support also. Gods peace to you Laura. Mattie
