I found out yesterday that I have sclc. My first Dr. visit seemed hopeless to me. I'm wondering if my Dr. is so negative or is he being honest.
He said once diagnosed with sclc it has almost always spread. I had a bone scan which was clean and lab work which was good. I have a PET Scan scheduled for this Friday. He said if it hasn't spread then we can do Chemo and Radiation. I thought he said if it has spread we would do one of the two. He just made this already horrible nightmare much more grim. I don't know what to do now. Do I fight it? Is small cell worth fighting? I don't want my children and grandchildren to see me any worse. I am NEVER going back to this Dr. by the way!
