Good day. My wife was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2012 and she underwent lobectomy of the right middle lobe and part of the upper lobe. Thereafter she underwent chemo and radiation treatments. The cancer came back again, and she was given Iressa (Gefitinib). That held the cancer at bay for some time. Then they found a spot in her brain and also in her left lung, so they moved her over to Tagrisso (Osimertinib). She had coughed up blood last May and the doctors suspected pneumonia and was prescribed antibiotics. We took the Pneumonia diagnosis as mentioned. She had undergone a bronchoscopy and they found nothing there. She also started having pain in her arm and her radiation oncologist suggested having it radiated and she had the procedure done. The pain left for a few weeks and again started sometime August, She again underwent 5 radiation treatments to her arm and she had pain from the radiation, which was explained to us so she had hydromorphone, Tylenol and Advil to keep the pain manageable. The pain again left for a few weeks then started again sometime early December. She controlled the pain with Tylenol and Advil as needed. On December 30, she again coughed up blood and I brought her to the emergency room and she was seen by the doctor. She was told that her coughing up blood could be caused by one of the nodule being close to a blood vessel that may have ruptured and that she would maybe need to be seen by a respirologist. The respirologist came and told her blunty, "you know you will die from your cancer". What a way to start a new year. That really hit us but again we were determined to push on. We definitely had a good Christmas and New Year. The pain did not go away but instead got worse. She again started taking Tylenol and Advil every 6 hours. The area where they had treated with the 5 doses of radiation became swollen and at times stiff. There are times she would feel tingling to her fingers or up to her neck. At times the pain will go up her neck. They mentioned they were not sure why the radiation treatment did not work and was told she may need to meet an orthopedic surgeon for options as well as possibly stabilize the bone. Curious, I tried to find out what may be happening and found the possibility of the cancer had spread to the bone and was causing the pain. They termed it secondary bone cancer as it had originated from the lung and then manifested in the humerus or any of the long bones or the spine. Apparently, there is only palliative care in this situation. Reading further, they mentioned a survival rate as being 6 months so I am now afraid since I had looked it up. My wife is still at this point looking positive but I can definitely say, she is in pain and it really hurts for me when I see her in this condition. One thing though, after taking her Tylenol and Advil, the pain shoots up first before decreasing. So at night, she wakes up for her pain killer and then is able to sleep 1 to 1-1/2 hours after, sleeps until her next dose of pain killers and the same thing happens. She sometimes gets into a deep sleep but is again woken up by the pain. Right now, I help her bathe and get dressed since her left arm has very limited mobility due to the pain. It is part of my vow to look after her, in sickness and in health and I do, but I am scared about the thought of the "till death do us apart" which who know when.
