nomadawn Posted May 19, 2007 Share Posted May 19, 2007 Hi I have posted before - my mum has Small Cell Lung Cancer - extensive and has just completed her first round of carboplatin & etoposide. She had very few effects apart from tiredness but was able to carry on shopping gardening etc. Her hair is thinning and she does get sharp pains in her back which radiate round her middle but this is occasional. My question is could she get more effects as the treatment goes on or is this a good indicator of how she will be for future rounds. Also any advice for mouth ulcers which she has just got - salt water being used but is there anything better? Any advice/experiences would be appreciated as I would like to take my mum away for a weeks break after her second round based on the fact that she did so well on the first one. Thanks & god bless Debbie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
