Re: how long can my husband survive with small cell lung cancer that has spread to th
Sorry to hear about your husband. Unfortunately until my sister was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer I didn't realize how each cancer is individual and not one is the same so of course naturally they can't tell us much. When her cancer was diagnosed it had metastisized to her liver, adrenalyn gland and they thought maybe to the brain. She had chemo and then full radiation to the head as a precaution for brain cancer. Unfortunately she only lived approximately 1 year and passed this February. But there is always hope, stories keep popping up of almost a miracle so I say stay positive because even when my sister was in her final days the doctor said she could also just come out of the situation he'd seen it before so never give up. Try and be strong as I was for my sister so the situation is easier for them because I know they worry about us and they have to save their energy for themselves. Unfortunately I didn't live close to my sister so her husband had to go thru all the treatments with her and he was always positive for her which I am very grateful for even though I know it must be hard. All the best to you and your husband and if you need support there is always this forum which has a lot of caring and informative people.
