Notts Posted June 25, 2009 Share Posted June 25, 2009 Hello All, Back again with some new issues. After completing my Chemo and then being hospitalized for 2 weeks, receiving blood daily for low white count, finally was discharged and the counts finally came back up. Had about 5 or 6 really GOOD weeks (better than I had felt in years). Now new tests showed significant enlargement or the right hilar mass and development of peripheral nodule in the upper lung. Also, slight volume loss in the right lower lobe. My choices were 4. Hospice, Chemo of Alimta, Chemo of Tarceva (not highly receommened by Doc) or clinical trials. Have chosen the Alimta Chemo to start, although I did some research on the Tarceva and didn't get much bad feed back, do wonder about the Docs comments. Anyone who has any info on either or these, it would be greatly appreciated. Suppose to start 1st Alimta treatment on Tues. Need to know about side effects and how well it has worked for you. They are not giving me much time, so sort of grasping at straws. Looking forward to your responses and thanking you in advance, I am Sincerely, Ceedee (Carol) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
