I'm new to join the lung cancer supportive group.
My sister lives in HK and 38year old. She was diagnosed with stage 3 adenocarcinomas lung cancer which was resected about a year back, but metastasised to the frontal part of her brain. The tumour was removed a couple of weeks ago. She has just had an MRI and PET scan both which appeared clear.
Our father died of SCLC a few years ago and he was a smoker, but my sister is not. It was a slow horrible death. Ironically, my sister also a lung cancer!! Although she has been very brave throughout the ordeal, she is very scared and depressed. She is frightened of how she will die, and she is scared and worried for my mother! I'm very scared and heartbroken, I don't want her to die the way my father die.
Although her whole body PET scan and brain MRI is clear for now, but what next? I know her tumour is active or otherwise it won't reappear on the brain. I live in Sydney and went to Hong Kong last Sunday (19/6) and is in enforced quarantine for a week.
How can I help her suffer less? What's next for her?
I appreciate all your help.
