Don Wood Posted January 18, 2006 Share Posted January 18, 2006 We went to the oncologist today to get the report on last week's PET scan. Bad news: little change (no improvement). Good news: little change (no progression). Because she has a large tumor on her liver (she has no symptoms from it), the onc wants to start a new chemo. He is going to give her two weeks more to rest up. In two weeks, she will start Alimta, and continue that every three weeks. She will also have to take B-12 shots and folic acid to counteract side effects. For those of you who have experience with Alimta, would appreciate knowing side effects and effectiveness for your case. Lucie is disappointed, but accepting of the circumstances we find ourselves in. I am glad the lc has not progressed. Don Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
