Sandi721 Posted October 19, 2010 Share Posted October 19, 2010 Well here I am feeling like I have been run over by a truck, I went from finding a knot in my neck on Sept 23 to being diagnosed with NSCLC last Thursday, speaking with onocologist yesterday, getting a portcath tomorrow and trying to decide whether to participate in clinical trial or use conventional treatment. Am at least stage IIIb because was in lymph nodes. CT of abdomen and pelvis shows everything clear except a couple of small spots in liver. Having PET Scan Tuesday to confirm that, I have had cysts in liver for years. Actually had symptoms for months in the fatigue and slight shortness of breath,loss of appetite and weight loss but they found my b12 was extremely low and thyroid meds needed adjusting so was attributed to that. Even had a chest x ray in June which did not show any problem. Has anyone here been in the Clinical Trials, the two meds are the standard treatment Taxol, Carboplatin, and Avastin and the other one is Alimta and Carboplatin. Would get one of them just won't know which until right before I start which should be week after next. While I know this does not sound good, I am determined to fight this all the way.
