Just making this post to know about the experience of people with similar diagnosis or relatives/loved one's of someone with a similar diagnosis and what to expect.
My father has been recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Adenocarcinoma. He is a non-smoker. At this point the cancer is present extensively in both lungs and has also spread to Lymph nodes, the cervical bones as well as the spine. The cancer is also present in the collar bone and hip bone.
There is no brain metastasis as of now.
He has tested negetive for EGFR,Ros1,ALK mutations, eliminating the possibility of targeted therapy. On our next visit to the doctor I am going to request PDL-1 and testing for other mutations as well to see if something comes positive and we can explore more treatment options.
Currently the doctors have him on palliative chemotherapy, Pemetrexed+cisplatin.
According to the five opinions that we have taken from well-known oncologist in Delhi, he has a poor prognosis considering the fact that all the mutations have came back negetive.
