In brief: Yes, there is treatm

There is some treatment which can help you.
Ask your oncologist to help you and use chemotherapy with a drug called gemcitabine in combination with cisplatin. A british trial reported recently showed this treatment regimen to provide fairly good benefit in about half of the pateints...So you might be luck and benefit from this intervention.

With diffuse metastatic disease and on home O2, this might be a good time to talk to your doctor about hospice or comfort care. Quality of life should be a prime concern now.

In brief: Chemotherapy

A combination of Gemzar (gemcitabine) and cisplatinum would be a good treatment for this type if cancer but the intention of therapy will be still palliative chemo not curative.
