Hello everyone. It's been a while since i last posted. My mom and dad have moved up to MA to live with me and my family. Things were going well...Dad's new oncologist is wonderful and had so much more hope than the dr in FL...I just wish they had gotten up here sooner. Dad has been complaing of stomache discomfort and difficulty with his bowels. Well, he had a colonoscopy today and they found a 3cm mass. I don't know what to think now. He seemed to be doing so well...tolerating the chemo for the lung cancer...now what??? Do they treat him for colon cancer too?? They sent the biopsy to pathology so we will know for sure in a week and a half I guess. Does lung cancer metastasize to the colon? I don't remember reading that anywhere. I guess it's possible...either way it is scary. I know he is depressed now. We try to engage him but he refuses to do anything but watch tv. :( My heart is breaking.

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
