LisaM Posted April 1, 2008 Share Posted April 1, 2008 Hi. My name is Lisa and my husband George has just been diagnosed with Stage IV NSCLC after it was discovered by accident (large mass in RT upper lobe). The have found a met in his adrenal gland. He has been completely asymptomatic. He had his first dose of chemo on Friday 3/28/08 of carboplatin and gemzar. It went well, just a little tired now. He's scheduled for a second dose 4/4/08 of just the gemzar. Is the chemo cumulative? Is he going to feel bad after Friday's dose because right now he's okay. The plan is to try 3 rounds of chemo , repeat the PET scan and if all is well, do surgery. We're both struggling to process everything as it has happened so fast (good?). I'm looking for all kinds of info and help- he doesn't want to know anything. Is this normal?? It's a nightmare. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
