Thank you Tom! And everybody! I will try to stay the course! I took a leave of abcense of work this will be my third snowbird season that I will miss but my boss called and told me not to worry about my job that he will try to put me somewhere when I can come back ; so that made me feel a little better. I'm really worried about this time around for my husbands chemo cycles he is not the healthiest;neuropathy; heart ;diabetes;.he was going to have surgery on his back next week for severe spinal stenosis and he has waited so long for approval for it from the VA.but now he can't have it Cuz of chemo; so I'm afraid the chemo is going to make the back pain even worse. I have to be strong for him but I'm terrified inside.I was scared the first time for him but for some reason I knew he could beat it and he did; but this time I...just; well to many ifs . I took care of my father dying of cancer which was very hard and I feel it even gave me a little post tramactic stress ; but I feel this time around will be 100 times harder. ( if goes wrong) they will be using the same drug for small cell and if he respond good his 2 Nd cycle they will add a new drug immunotherapy to it. Well I'll keep you informed thanks for listening.
Lar I'm so sorry to hear about your situation. My husband has small cell .He was in remission for a year .6 months after treatments he had a dephiberator pace maker put in. His cancer just came back and goes in for treatment this week. I hope it doesn't make his heart weaker he has a fraction rate at 30. I'll let u know. I hope u are doing well. Are you in limited stage? Are you in remission?
