fighting4mom Posted July 16, 2009 Share Posted July 16, 2009 Hello LCSC Family, Since my last posting, Mom and I revisited our 2 oncs (we had both consulting collaboratively so that we could make the best possible treatment decisions). We decided together that instead of the weekly chemo plan of carbo/taxol, we are going with the cisplatin/topo regimen (2 cycles) in addition to the radiation (6-7 weeks) . We’ve been amply advised that the treatment is much more aggressive and has a couple additional possible side effects but Mom (and I am SO proud of her) wants to fight it with everything she has – and with the strongest drugs possible. Treatment commences next week … we know it will be tough (especially around the 2 week mark, right?) but with this attitude I am thinking and praying that great things are possible. I believe in miracles … all of you reading this post are to me. Thank you for your support – and any advice you may have. Wishing you all the best in your fights! With blessings, Kimberly Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
