Re: how long will i live with stage 4 lung cancer
Hi Nakayla first off I am really sorry about your stage 4 diagnoses. You did not say if it is small cell or non small cell? My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell lung cancer in 2005. I don't want to say what she went through, you will too. DR's can give their predictions of time-but there is always hope they could be wrong. I will say that as my mom received radiation treatment she went downhill very fast, but that is not always the way with everyone, it depends on where you are getting treatment and what treatment you will be getting You are most likely very scared as was my mom. I hope you have someone, at least one person who will be there to support you. I was my mom's caregiver and saw what she went through. Both my mom and myself were very comforted by having each other to go through it all together. I am so glad that I was there for her, she was a funny, youthful 71 year old-she was so strong through the whole journey. I couldn't believe it, always said there were people worse off than her! Wow. I loved her so very much and I hope you are comforted with love and support. My mom wanted me to be honest with her through it all, it was hard for me-but I always told her the honest truth about her tests and what would happen next-we had a very open relationship. I will be thinking about you Nakayla with warm hugs.
