tk1235 Posted January 3, 2007 Share Posted January 3, 2007 My mother has been being treated for NSCLC. She completed 3 cycles of chemo (Cisplatin and Etopocide) and 36 radiation treatments. It went better than I could have ever expected. She just had a ct scan yesterday and we should have the results next week. All along during her treatments the oncologist and radiologist said she was doing great and that her lungs sounded clear. She elected not to have the surgery as she is 77 and was not comfortable having it. She had two of her lymph nodes in her chest that were involved, but according to the doctors, they are not a factor anymore according to the ct scans that she had during her radiation therapy. I appreciate all of your advice along the way. Now, the oncologist wants Mom to have possibly 3 treatments of taxotere. One would be next Monday, then she would be off 3 weeks and then have another and so on. She is worried about getting sick on this as she had no nausea during her 18 other treatments. She took Emend each day she had the cisplatin and she wonders if she needs to take it for the Taxotere. The oncologist has said that this chemo is not nearly as strong as the Cisplatin and that she should not have any trouble, but I just want to make sure. It sounds like these treatments have done the trick but I will await the ct results. God bless everyone on this board and thanks again for all of the advice.
