Re: At a crossroads....
Hi Snoopy....sending you a big hug from Irvine! Regarding what route to take...chemo or no chemo...tough one to answer and each person is so different. We were fortunate even though Stan had cancer throughout his entire body, he was still strong so he went forward with chemo. When he was diagnosed they gave him 2-6 months to live with no treatment. With treatment they gave him 8-16 months. (he is on month 23) The doctor is always amazed at how he outlived what they ever thought. Granted it is just a prediction and no one really knows how long it takes for the cancer to take over the body, but in Stan's case given how extensive they never thought he would make it this long. Also, he just finished his 5th line of chemo, which most people cannot do. I won't lie...things are not good right now, but we did have some wonderful times so I do pray you can have some more wonderful times with your husband and that he can be comfortable. The first time my husband had chemo he was sick from it, but once it started working his pain eased up quite a bit.
I wish I had an answer for you and all the others fighting this dreadful disease.
You stay strong Snoopy!
