View Full Version : Mom Has Stage 4 Lung Cancer

I just got a call from my mother's husband. She's back in the hospital. They have diagnosed her with stage 4 lung cancer. They said without chemo she has about 6 months, with chemo maybe a year or so.


After all she's been through with this cancer stuff, now this. It seems she just can't get a break. I'm over 1,000 miles away and feel powerless to help her. Of course realistically there's actually nothing I could do if I were there.


He's supposed to call me back on Monday after speaking with the specialist. They may or may not decide to operate, that's going to be decided by the specialist. At this stage surgery may be pointless. I just have to wonder, with all of the testing and follow up she's had, how could they have missed this for so long that it's progressed to stage 4 before they caught it?


Needless to say I am kind of torn up about it at the moment. Please pray for her if you're so inclined.

Mason,

I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. She's been through so much already and you being far away makes it all that much tougher. Life sure doesn't seem fair a lot of times.

I lost my Mom when she was only 59 (to a second stroke - she had her first at age 40) so I can in many ways relate. I am here to tell you that if there is a blessing to be had in any of this, it may be that she hopefully won't have an extended period of suffering...my Mom's decline took close to a year before she died and it was pretty excruciating for her and all of us. I know that anger, sadness, grief and acceptance of sorts all play a part in this time. It stinks, it really does. No sugar coating possible. But if you can be glad for every conversation you have with your Mom and the fact that you have a good relationship with her, that does help.

I wish there was something I could do or say...if you need to rant or vent, you can PM me anytime. :hug:

In the meantime, I will most certainly pray for Ms. Jean. :pray:

And please take good care of yourself during this time...caregivers and people who love someone who is sick are notorious for neglecting their own health which doesn't help anyone at all. Trust me, I've been there too. Be well, Mason. :hug:

Oh Mason, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I will definitely keep your mom (and you) in my prayers. And do take care of yourself. It won't help her to have you get sick. As others have said, your voice on the telephone line will do her wonders.

:hug: :muah: :pray:

I had been thinking the same thing at first. Sort of in defense of the doctors -- my grandmother passed away from lung cancer. She died 1 day after she was diagnosed & she had only been complaining about a sore shoulder blade for a couple of weeks. It was a very agressive form of lung cancer. (btw -- she never smoked a day in her life)

Mason ~ have you been able to talk to your mother?

The same thing happened to my mother.
She had been going to the doctor all along and suddenly she woke up one morning and told me she couldnt breath and to take her to the Emergency Room. A few hours later the doctors told me she had 10 days to live. When I questioned how that could happen they said the type of lung cancer she had was "very aggressive"

I didn't mention it, but since some have.. both my aunt and uncle (married) were diagnosed with lung cancer this year within 6 mos or so of each other. My aunts was straight forward, but my uncle was misdiagnosed for a few months because the symptoms he was having had nothing to do with the lungs. They finally found it in his brain and and then the lung. Sometimes these things don't produce symptoms like you'd expect which may have been what happened to your mom. :hug::hug::hug:

I'm very sorry to hear this, Mason. And I know how you feel. My boyfriend's nephew (21 yo) was diagnosed with bone cancer last year, and after months of chemo, surgery and more chemo, we just learned 2 weeks ago that the cancer is back. :pout: We live far away, there is very little we can do, and it's so frustrating.

On the other hand, my grandmother is dying from cancer, and it doesn't seem to be quick enough for her. She refused treatment over a year ago, she's just "waiting for the good Lord to come and get her", as she says. I love my grandmother, I don't want her to die. But she had a long life, and she's ready to go. Why can't this stupid cancer take my grandmother and leave my bf's nephew and your mother alone instead? :pout:

I'm sorry for the rant. I just hate cancer so much. I will be thinking of you. :hug:

I am very sorry to hear about your mother, Mason!

Been there, done that. My mom was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1975...they took 1/3 of the offending lung...gave her 6 months to live...she lived for another 3.5 years...and when it resurfaced, they once again gave her 6 months to live...but she died in 9 days.

Lung cancer can hide out. I don't understand it at all.

So Momma has been gone since 1977...and she was only 46.

I will pray for your mother. And, if she just isn't able to overcome it, I will pray that she doesn't have too much discomfort. She prolly won't.

My mom didn't. Well, she did, but it was so quick...she didn't in the final days. It was the years of chemotherapy and radiation that was awful for her, between 1975-1977. I mean that poor thing went through it all. Surgery, chemo, and radiation. Oh, and then fluid "taps" through the chest wall, to drain the yellow fluid filling her chest cavity, were an extra special icing on the cake.

And I'll pray for you to have the strength to cope with this tragedy.
The loss of a mother is awful. I know. :pout:

I hope I haven't said too much.

Thanks everyone. To be honest my heart just hasn't been into getting online the past few days. I am sitting out a snowstorm right now and thought I should do so.

Mom is back home now, with a hospice worker. She's refusing to undergo any more chemo, and from what I understand it probably wouldn't do much good anyway. It breaks my heart that she is refusing treatment, but in a way I understand it. At this point I have to let her make her own decisions and respect them.

I am so sorry to hear this Mason. I went through this with my younger sister. She fought two different cancers for 13 years and in the end when there was nothing else to do and she was so tired of fighting she just wanted to die as soon as possible. It broke my heart to let her go but I knew she was right. It really hurts and I understand how you are feeling. But the others are right. Just to hear your voice would be such a boost to her. I hope things get better for you soon. Prayers coming your way.

Mason--
As you are probably discovering, the hospice people are wonderful.
They'll make this period as comfortable and positive as possible, not only for your mother but for you and your stepfather, so you can treasure the time you have left with Mom.

Your mother is a courageous woman and she has raised a good son.

vaknitter

Your family will remain in my prayers. My grandmother also refused treatment for her lung cancer. The doctor started talking about nursing care in the home etc and she told him he could keep his nurses she was going home - alone. Needless to say my mom and her sisters took turns staying with her. She lived independently in a huge house and cared for my grandfather at home as he died from bladder cancer. She refused to let anyone come in to help her. I will never forget calling her one day at the hosp and a physical therapist happened to walk into the room to get her up to walk and brought a walker and grandma told me to talk some sense into that therapist b/c she'd never needed a walker before and she certainly didn't need one now.... she checked out AMA the next day.
I know it's very hard to accept - people we love refusing treatment, but it gives them a sense of control. I know it sounds morbid and you will know what it right for your family, but some families find it helpful to have the family member be a part of planning their own funeral. My grandmother actually told us her wishes about what to do with her house, her wedding rings, her funeral etc - she actually requested no funeral or memorial. My best friend is losing her FIL to lung cancer and they had a big dinner for him and he asked people to be pall bearers, readers etc.

I just got a call from my youngest brother, who has been at Mom's for a few days and is returning home tomorrow. She's feeling a bit better, is eating, and is even reconsidering the chemo although she hasn't committed to it yet.

I keep checking this thread to see how you and your mom are doing, Mason. And I keep wishing that there were better words than I'm coming up with to express my sympathy and support. As others have said, your love and support (even if it has to be from a distance) are what your mom is going to appreciate the most.

I don't know what I can say to make things better, but know that you and your family are in our prayers.
Let us know if there's anything we can do for you.

THanks for the update. Ms. Jean is still in our thoughts and prayers. I lost my own Mom in 2004 because of cancer. Please know that you are not alone.

I am also so very sorry to hear this sad news. I will be praying for you all during this tough time.

I lost my Dad suddenly this summer and it was so hard, I didn't get to talk to him at all. Call your mom as much as you can, it will help you both get through this!!

Please keep us posted and let us know if either of you need anything.

Mason, you have my sincerest condolences, I know how you feel after losing my own mother to stomach cancer just a little over a month ago. I'll definitely keep you and your family in my prayers.
