Keli Posted July 22, 2010 Share Posted July 22, 2010 Well the cisplatin and etopiside didnt work -- I had one treatment and a week and a half later i had the lymphs go crazy -- on my neck - in front of my heart - some system node that makes my right hand is numb. These are all in the envelop of the NSCLC IIIb. The node under my arm bit and a node in my lower back of course is not. I am a IV now and not very happy about it. I start on Taxol ( again ) and Avastin tomorrow the 23rd. I sooo hope this works. Doc says I will probably stay on a maintenance dose of something because of my nodes. On the positive side -- the CT did show the tumor in the lung did get smaller -- I was told if it showed no change it would be no surprise because it usually takes at least 3 months to see a change in the ct due to the body cleaning up the dead tissue. That is really good!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
