Candy Posted September 4, 2003 Share Posted September 4, 2003 It came as no suprise since we went into them knowing Hugh's markers were up, but the chest scan showed a swollen area and enlarged nodes in his right lung (the original tumor was in his left lung). He started chemo today. Taxol and Camptosar. The doctor says the length of this is open ended depending on what the results are. He says the goal is still to shrink/stabalize the cancer and he also feels that we will see good results from the radiation for the brain mets. He wants to wait a full month before doing a brain scan. Hugh's spirits are still good, he is walking every morning and working around the house. I don't know if this chemo will make him as tired as the last. The doctor said the side effects are about the same. The treatment is different, before we did 3 days of treatment and 2 1/2 wks. off. Now we will do treatment once a week for 2 weeks and a week off. Any one have any experience with this chemo? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
