Jan 7, 2017 · Adenocarcinoma lung with metastasis pelvis, back, femur bones stage IV in Lung Cancer

My husband has had two chemo sessions of Cisplatin and pemetrexed with zometa). He hasn’t vomited but has aversion to certain foods, not always the same reaction to the same foods. His latest scan shows a new nodule in the lung and progressive bone metástasis. He will begin radiotherapy next week. Sometimes I feel that the treatments are going to kill him. He is a very active person by nature and now has no energy at all.

We found out that my husband is not ALK positive so two days ago he began chemotherapy. No vomiting, but stomach discomfort and acid reflux as well as not beng able to eat. Since yesterday he has only eaten soup, a vitamin-high caloric drink, orange juice, some oatmeal and a yoghurt shake. Peppermint candy bits seem to calm the reflux and now he has been prescribed omeprazol which he begins tomorrow. Any suggestions for foods? Smells really get to him even though they are not strong ones. Thanks to anyone with ideas !

Right now my husband has received one dose of Zometa, which hit him really hard. He hasn’t had anymore and we await to see if he is ALK positive. You really answered my question with the experience your father had. Neither my husband nor I would like to do therapy that only offers a few months of bad side efects. Thank you so much.

Many thanks to you all for your commentaries. At this point molecular tests are being done to see about eligibility for targeted treatment. Awaiting results to see if ALK is positive or not. Definitely aware of the power of positive outlook and optimism towards possible treatment! Quality of life very important factor when looking at treatments and their adverse effects, as in the example given by the moderator.

What can happen if treatment is refused?
