Oncologist 's  Response
Since your uncle is suffering from lung cancer and after 6 rounds of chemotherapy there is no response the aim of treatment now should only be basic supportive care.
I advise u arrange for an oxygen cylinder at home for his breathlessness and when there is acute shortness of breath give him oxygen by mask along with deriphylline tablets.
