Suzie Q Posted October 28, 2004 Share Posted October 28, 2004 Well, maybe it wasn't the Velcade after all...Mom's lung nodules are increasing in size after 2 more rounds of Velcade only, after having a 90% shrinkage with carbo/gemzar/velcade combo. So her onc said stop the velcade, and let's move on to Alimta. The info given to her indicates it is taken with other platinum-based chemo, but I'm wondering if anyone is on it as a stand-alone agent, and how it has gone for you. She got her vit B12 shop today, and will start Alimta next week. My dad just had surgery for malignant tumor in shi abdomen. they think it's a sarcoma, but aren't sure. We're waiting further pathology results. Dad has had prostate ca and melanoma. Anyone have a link on info about patients getting multiple types of cancer within 10 years? Maybe a defective gene? ~Karen Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
