jtlaharder Posted May 16, 2007 Share Posted May 16, 2007 My mom is 60 years old, non-smoker. She was diagnosed with NSCLC and in stage IV. She is in pain....there are couple 2cms tumors on her left lung and several in her adrenal area(2 and 3 mms) and has pain in her hip area. Her oncologist is recommending Cisplatin/Gemcitabine combo. 4 hour drip of Cisplatin every 3 weeks and Gemcitabine once every week......There are several on here that are taking the Carboplatin/Taxol combo as opposed to what her doctor is recommneding....Anyone know why doctors prefer one over the other? Anyone who has been on Cisplatin/Gemcitabine? What are your side effect? What anti-naseua meds were prescribed? What can we expect? Sorry for all the questions! Just very anxious!! Thanks!!
