hi I'm new -intorducing myself - carer of grade 4 lung cancer survivor

Hi I'm new here. My husband was diagnosed with gr 3 NSCLC in Feb 2009. Recd chemo-radiation, however in Sept 2009 got the news that it had metastasized. Had multiple mets in liver, bones, adrenal and brain. Currently on Alimta - 3 weekly cycles. He is doing very well and he is fighting fit. We accept the diagnosis but not the prognosis.

i think thats great he is fighting fit.. i often think if the cancer patient has the right mind frame they have the right way of doing it. My bf has stage four bowel cancer, he's doc said his prog wasnt good either, but he's kinda ignoring it and staying positive... i think if the person wants to die, and give up then they do.. best of luck xo

Thanks for your reply. I believe that what you believe will come true. My husband is fighting fit, but often it is scary especially when the doctors think we are in denial and try to prepare us to accept the prognosis. We accept the diagnosis but believe we can impact on the prognosis.All the best for you and your partner.
