beat it Posted April 10, 2007 Share Posted April 10, 2007 I know this is a very broad question, sorry. My MIL had 6 rounds of Carbo/Taxol/Avistan very 21 days (when platlets allowed her to remain on schedule) it has now been 3.5 weeks since the last round. She has seen almost no improvement in her SOB or strengh. Sleeps alot. Winded after walking thru the house............. Am I just being impatient? I know we all have our different opinions in regards to treatment. This chemo seems to have taken her life from her. I know the cancer would too eventually (DX at Stage 4) but the Onc said any further chemo really isnt going to be nessasary. What ever they got from the first run would be the extent of the reduction. We are with out tumors now in both lungs (there had been 1 in each lung, ............well round ones anyway.) Still have residue showing in a CT scan on the right and Pluera involvement on the left.....he wasnt sure if it was all cancer, part fibrosis or scar tissue on the left. I just feel so defeated. Bless her...she's the one fighting all this not me. Beat it!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
