My 74 yo grandpa just got diagnosed with Small Cell Lung Cancer. It has mestastized to his stomach, bladder, and liver. They said this is aggressive and he begins treatment within the next two weeks. He is having a really hard time and so is my grandma. My heart is broken and I am so scared of losing him. He isn’t in good spirits at all. He can’t eat anything because of the problems in his stomach and has been vomiting and diarrhea for over 2 months. I’m so mad they are just now finding this. Has anyone experienced something similar? What is his life expectancy from this? How long will he have if treatment is even successful? I have so many questions. I really worry about side effects from chemo with his age.
