neilb Posted April 19, 2007 Share Posted April 19, 2007 Unfortunately, I've progressed slightly after two cycles of Carboplatin, Docetaxel, and Velcade. I still have two enlarged lymph nodes in the mediastinum and one in the right, supraclavicular area (and the mediastinum ones are slightly larger). So, we're discontinuing this combination. So, what next? Alimta? Seems safe but unlikely to hit a home run? Tarceva? I do have adenocarcinoma, and I am a lifelong nonsmoker. I'm not a woman or Japanese, but you can't have everything! I'm leaning this way. I'm also being offered a clinical trial of Halichondrin B (also known as E7389). The little I've found about it suggests that researchers hold out high hopes for it, but I know very little. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I'm a little frustrated in that I feel fine. If we didn't have pictures and a biopsy to prove otherwise, I'd think I was in great shape.--Neil Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
