Guest meliann77 Posted November 25, 2004 Share Posted November 25, 2004 Hi Everyone, I have been reading this site and am very pleased to have found it. My mother (55 yrs old) was diagnosed with Stage III lung cancer last summer and last December they removed her left lung. Since then she has undergone chemo and radiation and it has caused many more problems that she wasn't able to get over. This past week we found out that her cancer has returned and has spread to her lymph nodes and her left plural wall (not sure if there is more than that). The doctors told her that the only strong option right now is Alimita, which she will start on Tuesday. If her body can't take it then they will put her on a pill form of chemo. She is very worried about Alimita and I was wondering if 1) anyone has undergone it and what are their thoughts and 2) if anyone has been in or is in a similiar situation (lung removal and cancer has come back). Thank you for your time. Much love...Melissa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
