Don Wood Posted January 13, 2005 Share Posted January 13, 2005 We went to the onc today. Lucie finished her radiation treatments on the skull last week. She has been extremely tired from the treatments. Onc wants to wait a month to give the radiation full time to work and then scan for effectiveness. Last scans still show some minor activity in the lymph nodes near the lungs, so onc wants to try another chemo. He has cooled on Tarceva because of the more recent studies with Iressa. He is back to recommending Alimta, which he had recommended as a backup during Navelbine treatment. Lucie asked to have a break so she can get to feeling more normal before trying something else. He agreed with that, so she will have at least two weeks rest if not a bit more. We are pleased. We have been going to church to a weekly dinner there for the past few weeks and it is so good to see her enjoy such activities again and to be able to do so. Thanks again for your continued love, support and prayers. It helps us both very much. Don Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
