izumi Posted October 13, 2009 Share Posted October 13, 2009 hello everybody,i wrote a while back maybe only one time,but i read the pages quite often you have all been a great help.thank you. my news is that after finishing chemo nov08 with a little bit left on the lymph node near the collarbone,we have had nearly a year with no treatment.over the time the lymph node has increased to about 2cmx2cm x2.after other checks everything else seems to be clear.they have now decided to start treatment again using alimta/cisplatin.unfortunately living in japan you have to stay in hospital one week before you start treatment and about another two weeks after while they watch your side effects.would love any info on alimta and alimta/cisplatin as in japan they only have been able to use it since may 09any usual side effects etc.this last year he has been running 10km a day and seems fitter then ever,an overall better lifestylethank you liz and izumi fukuoka city japan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
