Stage 4 Lung CA with mets

Hi everyone,

 

     I am just new to this site and I joined because my 53 year old husband was diagnosed with stage 4 lung CA last Dec 20, 2016. 

     After undergoing chemotherapy for 2 years with various drugs, immunotherapy and TKI of 2 brands, bone radiation of 10 sessions, his lung, brain and bone mets were stable but those on the liver has been aggressive. 

     He has just undergone another biopsy for molecular profiling of the tumor and right now, we’re waiting for the results.

 

     Please pray for him that his onco may find the right treatment that will make these tumors stable for now, then slowly decreasing in size until they become smaller. May he be spared from pain and discomfort so he may enjoy a more normal life with us. 

     May our good Lord bless us all, always 🙏🏻

My 💕

Hi @mc407,

 

I just wanted to check in and see how both yourself and your husband are doing ❤️

 

You may like to read about Telephone Support Groups, which I think would be a good option for you to consider 🙂

Hi Kate,

We’re still waiting for the new meds to arrive from Singapore before he will start with his chemo on Abraxane. We’re just managing the pain he feels on his right back side and hopeful that the new drug will shrink all the tumors that progressed this past month.... please include him in your prayers.

Thanks and God bless🙏🏻

 Thanks anyway,
