My Dad, 67 has NSCLC was found on a routine check up Jan 2012, it has spread to other locations, not the bones or spine as of yet. He also has Hep C, and Cirrhosis. On 8/29 they pumped his belly of extra fluid, they called it Ascites. And right after that they changed his meds to Avastin, once on the Avastin, which has been about 3 weeks now, and only one dose, he has been pretty much bed ridden. This is very hard for my Dad for he was always very active. He is talking about ending all treatment because he doesn't want to spend his last days in the bed. Question is A. If he stops all meds now, will he bounce back enough to get up and do something before death? B. How long does he have left really? His doc's never tell us anything except only god knows. But I feel they have some knowledge, they see this everyday. Back in the start, they told my Dad a year without meds, but 9mos later with meds..what are we looking at?
