LolasDaughter Posted November 10, 2007 Share Posted November 10, 2007 This was PET scan week and we got the best news we could yesterday - 'no evidence of metastatic disease'! Yahoo!! We are thrilled and frankly, were expecting to hear Stage IV (based on seeing a nodule on the adrenal gland & suspicious lesions on the liver). We are all ecstatic. Shows what a difference a few weeks make - the fact that she's still Stage III is GREAT news! And so now, let the battle begin! Mom starts chemo on Monday. She'll receive cisplatin/etoposide Mon - Wed and then off for 2 1/2 weeks until the first week of December, for round 2. Then a CT scan to see how much the tumor (8 cm) has shrunk. If it has shrunk enough, then they will start chemo plus radiation treatments. Mom's ready for a fight and we're all here ready to go into battle with her. I've searched the board on her treatment plan and got lots of good info but would love to hear how this chemo affected folks (I know everyone is different)and Stage III success stories!
