marym Posted September 4, 2005 Share Posted September 4, 2005 Hi All, I rote some time ago as mch566 - but it's been a while and I needed to re-register. I was diagnosed in May with NSCLC with mets to bone and brain. I recd radiation for the bone in CA, and then moved to FL. Here I am being treated at Moffitt Cancer Center. So far, I have had stereotactic radiation to the brain and I am in a clinical trial fo chemo. I am getting gemcitibine and carboplatin. I get both drugs day 1, only gemcitibine day 8 and nothing day 15. Then day 21 starts a new cycle. They do a CT after every 2 cycles and discontinue if no improvement. My first CT is 9/19 - and I'm hoping it will show some good. My side effects are some nausea, and achiness as well as fatigue. I also have some depression about wether I will ever fell okay again. I had a really tough withdrawal from decadron after the radiation to the brain. Anyone who has had experience with the drugs I'm taking, please let me know how it worked for you. Hope to get on the computer some more now that I'm set up again. Best to all. Mary Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
