Can anything I can do to slow down lung cancer?

I have small cell lung cancer and have been through Chemo and radiation because it had spread to the brain.  I tried immunotherapy but severe side effects of diarrhea caused this to be cancelled.  Just wanted to know if there was anything I can do on my own to slow down the progression of this disease.  Would appreciate any help.  Thanks and God Bless.

Hello and welcome to the forum.  I am so very sorry to read of your situation.  Have you spoken to your doctor about any clinical trials that you could participate in?  Are they recommending palliative/support care for you? There is also hospice care which can be done in your home.  Here's info on palliative care and hospice care https://www.nia.nih.gov/health/what-are-palliative-care-and-hospice-care.  Staying healthy through proper nutrition and rest will also help you overall.  Please stay in touch and let us know how you are doing.
