Topic: back after a long abscence
I lost my husband to CC last March 08. I stayed away from the site for a few months as I was too griefstricken. I find I want to hear about everyone, follow the progress and maybe offer some support if I can.
My 62 year old husband had no symptoms either and his tumor was 11.5cm. I think we would have had more time if the cc had not caused several embollisms to occur. Some of the treatments seeme to buy time -as hellish as they were - he felt he could cope and even kept working, traveling ( with the oxygen tank in tow) and living as much as possible until a few days before his death. He had to go to Hospice for his last two days as the agitation caused by too much Ativan was causing him terrible distress, He wanted to LIVE -and he did - until the end.
