Flyman35 Posted March 30, 2008 Share Posted March 30, 2008 Hello, I am new here to this site and here is my story. My husband after having a bad cough for several months and was treated for pnuemonia finally had an x-ray and after many other test was diagnosed 1/29/08 with Stage IV NSCLC Squamous cell w/ mets to the liver. We have just has the third round of chemo with Carboplatin/taxol. He had a CT scan on 3/20 which showed 1/3 shrinkage to the liver met and a 1 cm shrinkage in the lung. We will have 1 more round of chemo and then another CT and a bone scan to see if there is more shrinkage. Tom is 72 yrs young. Tom has lost his father and 2 sisters to cancer. As far as age goes he has out lived all of them. His father and 1 sister were taken quite quickly both within a year but Marion lived for 7 years before throat cancer which had gone to her brain and bones took her away. We still remain hopeful.
