内容：Hello I am from New Zealand. My father had a stroke four weeks ago and through the various assessments he had following this, the doctors found a lesion in his lung which has been confirmed as non small cell lung cancer. The cancer is metastatic as the local lymph nodes are swollen and because of its position (in the left lung but close to the divide between the left and right lung) the doctors in New Zealand say that it is probably not surgically operable. He is recovering from his stroke well, but I am not sure if he will be strong enough to go through with chemotherapy and radiotherapy in New Zealand. I was wanting some information on the treatments you offer, their side effects and whether you have treated similar patients to him. Also what are the costs involved and how long would you treat a patient for before being able to elucidate whether they were going to respond and be cured? I believe my father was exposed (though I am not sure to what level) briefly to asbestos about 30-40 years ago . The presenting symptoms that my father has currently is shortness of breath, and a chronic cough (for approx a year now). He is being treated with antibiotics at the moment and seems to be coughing a lot less however. The doctors have mentioned that they don't currently think the cancer is causing any of the symptoms he is presenting with. Do you also have facilities to care for patients who are not fully mobile? (as I am not sure how long it will take for him to fully recover from his stroke).
I have the medical records and scans available to send to you if you feel this will help.
I look forward to hearing from you. My phone number in New Zealand is 0064 4 976 4140 if you need to speak to me.
