kristiloo Posted July 28, 2005 Share Posted July 28, 2005 Hey guys, newcomer here. I posted yesterday for the first time in the newcomer's forum. Today we received not quite the news we were hoping for about my mom. The doctor said it was extensive SCLC because it was in some lymph nodes in her neck. However (this is all secondhand per my dad), the doctor said that was debatable limited/extensive so I guess that is good. They recorded what the doctor said, so I will listen to it when my dad emails it to me. I, however, like to think the diagnosis is mainly to get her involved in this clinical trial she is participating in (ext SCLC only). The chemo went well today, she says she feels fine (she was mainly bored to death lol), but this stuff has some weird side effects. I will get back to you with names of medicine after I hear the tape, or maybe someone here will know and tell me . She's not supposed to touch or ingest anything cold or the doctor said it would be like hitting her funny bone (painfully strangely tingly I guess). Also, she will be doing the "rough" medicine 1 day a week - rest for 2 weeks - 3 day treatments - rest for 2 weeks - rough medicine 1 day. Anyway, I'll update more as I find out, just wanted to post. Hope you all are well. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
