Chemotherapy: Cousin Died After Chemo

Language: Bahasa Indonesia / Malaysia

Gu is a 59-year-old male from Medan, Indonesia. In early March he was breathless and had coughs with blood in his sputum. A CT-scan of the thorax on 25 March 2010 indicated right pleural effusion, associated with collapse of right lower lobe of his lung. He underwent pleural tapping and felt better. He was scheduled for an endoscopy to further define his problem – suspicious of Stage 4 cancer. Everyone in the family was against chemotherapy. His cousin had lymphoma – underwent chemotherapy. After “successfully” completing the chemotherapy, he died.
