Pneumonia And Stage Iv Lung Cancer?

Postby Manawydan » Thu Apr 20, 2017 8:35 pm

My step-grandpa was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer back in October...He's been doing chemotherapy.
Just today, he requested to stop the treatment, but he will continue the antibiotics for the pneumonia. He's not doing so well, but I pray that he gets better, and that the cancer goes away everyday... I like to have hope, and not face reality. ...he's such a huge part of my life. He's not the same as he once was.. :(. Anyway, he is in the hospital as of three days ago with pneumonia... I am assuming this is not good... Could anyone give me more information of what to expect? :/

Pneumonia And Stage Iv Lung Cancer?

first off i am so sorry for this. its a hard thing to deal with, when a dear loved one is sick.
From the sounds of it, you cant expect a huge turn around- but again God works in mysterious ways.
I think the best thing for you, is to stay positive, visit him... help him out, read to him, bring him his favorite new paper or magazine.. make sure he's comfy. make him laugh. tell him you love him.
Just BE there for him! It's hard to get older, as see those you love around you also getting older and going through sickness or even worse.
Just keep your head up and remember death is inevitable, we all end up facing it someday... Cherish what you have now with him.
Keep praying!

Pneumonia And Stage Iv Lung Cancer?

As a Nurse who has worked in Hospice care I believe in being totally honest with those who WANT to know.


I don't know if and/or when you Grandfather will pass but I can tell you that Stage 4 cancer is not good and especially lung cancer as it usually spreads quickly and also causes many other problems- such as the Pneumonia he now has.


It is evident that HE has accepted the fact that he is terminal and has decided to stop the cancer treatments and just go with the medications to help clear the Pneumonia so- I am sure- he can at least breathe better. This is called "comfort care" and is still his choice to receive. He may live for months and the cancer may spread to other organs that will take him in days. This is not something anyone can predict.

I would like to encourage you in accepting this WITH him. If he wants to talk about his passing don't discourage him with statements like "don't say that Grandpa- you will get better". HE knows thats not true and it only makes it worse for him as he then worries about you or other family members not accepting and being upset and worried. Everyone needs to visit him as much as HE wants, encourage him to continue eating and taking the antibiotic and especially any pain medications he is given. Let him make the decisions about his remaining life and make it comfortable and as stress free as possible for him.

There are many miracles that occur all over the world every day and I am not saying that one cannot occur for him- but be prepared.

Good luck and God Bless you all.
