Re: Small Cell Extensive Lung Cancer
Thank you, Katlin. First, let me say that I am very sorry to hear about your father-in-law and will keep him in my thoughts and hope that he beats this horrendous disease.
Since first posting my question, I have learned a great deal about SCLC Extensive. The statistics are very frightening. My husband just finished the second round of chemo, has four more to go. He has a CAT scan tomorrow. He feels very good, the only side effects being the loss of his hair (only on his head), minor aches and pains, and low white cell counts, and he gets injections for that. He has a really good appetite and although he is a little tired, he still has alot of energy and is working full time. Those are good signs, but I'm not fooling myself. I know what the future may bring. He doesn't - his outlook is very positive, he refuses to look it up on the computer and learn the facts, and maybe that is for the best. Attitude means a great deal.
Thank you for taking the time to write to me and please keep in touch. All anyone can do is take this one day at a time.
