Lung Cancer Question?

Postby Bainhrydge » Sun Feb 22, 2015 8:41 pm

My Dad is a young 87 year old man, full of life, hell he golfed last week....He was feeling a little winded so we took him into the hospital and now he is diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer in one lung.



The doctors are saying he is too old for chemo..what do you think will happen next? They want to send him to a rehab center. I'm so confused. Please anyone that can help me I would certainly appreciate it.
Don't hold any thing back , please.

Below is a link to the Cancer Care Center at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center in southern California, a well known cancer center. Their website should provide some information, links and resources for you and your family. Also I'm sure you can probably call them if you have any questions you can't find answered on their site.

Lung cancer (Pleural Mesothelioma) stage 3 is normally considered as a advanced stage of mesothelioma there are only two way of treatment one is radiation therapy and another is chemotherapy do your best for your father treatment and stay with him so that he does not feel alone in this situation, he needs his all family's pray.

Hi from France ?

I lost my dad because of a lung cancer in 2007, however he had the chemo... About yours, probably his health will decrease little by little, although sometimes he will feel better, cancer is a weird illness.

The best for you is to pass the more time you can with him, tell him how you love him too, that will help him..It's important !

Have a nice day

Catherine
