kelli521 Posted September 22, 2009 Share Posted September 22, 2009 My husband, age 62 and a former smoker, was recently diagnosed with non-small cell adenocarcinoma of the lung. He has MS and a small metastic lesion was found on a routine MRI for MS. Because of neuropathy issues, he is starting on Alimta only without the "platinum" drugs. Not sure yet what they'll do about radiation, although he cannot have whole brain radiation because of MS. He had the brain tumor removed - they think they got all of it and can do radiation on just that spot. Does anyone have input on Alimta alone and lung cancer with MS? We're pretty scared right now but are trying to take it one day at a time. (I'm Kelli's mom.) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
