I smoke ciggs, I shouldn't smoke cigs, been smoking for about 45 years now, smoked a pipe for a few years, and have always enjoyed an occasional cigar. I smoke, I smoke I smoke, and my brother comes down with lung cancer. He's three years older than me, lives in Alabama. He had his third chemo treatment this week. Its advanced, its a bad kind, only 4% make it two years after being diagnosed with this type lung cancer. It has already spread to his lymph glands and maybe the brain. Both my folks are in their high 80s, my mom 87. They don't need this, I don't need this and my brother sure doesn't need this. He has a wife, children, step children, grandchildren. A life. I have nobody but him and my folks, a sister. I told him if I could trade places with him I would and I mean it 100%. Just real sad. My grandfather died of lung cancer at 58, my dad had cancer in his throat but has been cancer free 30 years. just ain't right. Heck I didn't want to live long enough to bury my folks and I sure don't want to see my brother or sister go before me. They are all I have. I have never married and no kids.

It's a bad deal Hip. I know because I've had to bury my whole family. But I truly hope your brother is among that 4%.... :thumbup:

The chemo didn't do much but kill his immune system. No positive results. Doctors want to try another round of a new chemo that if it works can give him another 11 months or so. The treatment he just had if it had been successful would have extended his life maybe 4 more months. Like I say this is a bad cancer. His insurance wont approve the second round of chemo, what a bite in the butt. We are having Thanksgiving in Atlanta at my sisters. His daughter coming home from Scotland, Im thinking I will get to spend some time with him. He says no he can't go, too many people (18-20) he's not even supposed to go to church. His immune system is gone and if someone gives him a cold he dies. Im gonna stop by his place on the way back from Atlanta anyway, unless Im sick.

I have always heard a 2nd round is not a good thing.

I guess it can be an has been exceptions.
