    Small Cell Diagnosis

    We saw both the nurse prac. and the MO today. His platelet count was a little low on Tues, so they did another draw today and it has recovered to normal level. So, he's all set up for 4th cycle starting Monday. Being told he will probably do a good 6 total treatments. They gave me the CT scan orders today and he is scheduled for the 30th. This is the scary part. Waiting, wondering, and having to undergo such strong medicine and it's side effects. Dr. said he is tolerating it well and told him to keep up the good work. I know it's probably too much to expect a full remission, but wouldn't that be great? Trying not to have too high of expectations but praying the fire inside is knocked down to a slow smolder. I'll be back later with results. Take care.

    Hi Rose. I had SBRT in September 2018 for a tumor in my lower left lung. I've been NED since so I am definitely a fan of the treatment. I had already had my upper lobe removed and my doc didn't think I was a good candidate for surgery. By the time mine was found, it was in my lymph nodes and thyroid. Please keep us posted on your progress and let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

    Hi Rose, Greetings from your “next state” neighbor in Kansas. I made several trips to the Capital when I was working. I was diagnosed Stage IV in September 2018 and a month later the biomarker revealed ALK Positive NSCLC. I had Mets to the rib, hip & spine. Similar story in that I had no symptoms until a persistent cough developed over the summer. No one is looking for lung cancer in healthy people. I’m glad you found us, here in this forum you’ll find everyone to be warm and supportive. Let us know how you’re doing so we can keep you company along the way. There is no question or topic that is too small and with the combined experience here this group has a lot to offer. Welcome. Michelle

    Interesting Article

    Good afternoon everyone. I came across this article this morning and found it interesting since it mentions its potential efficacy against NSCLC. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/progress-report-cancer-breakthroughs-2020-130000224.html Have a good day.
