tmtaycrf Posted September 26, 2012 Share Posted September 26, 2012 My husband was diagnosed with stage IV NSCLC in his left upper lung and lymph nodes more than a year ago. It had metastasized to several spots on his spine, ribs, and liver. He underwent radiation & 6 weeks of carboplatin + alimta which left only smaller tumors in his lung & one lymph node. He'll continue on alimta every 3 weeks and aredia every 6 weeks unless the tumors spread or increase in size. We take life one day at a time and appreciate all the good days and even the not so good days. I read AntiCancer A New Way of Life and Life Over Cancer -- adapted a lot of what's recommended. He won't give up meat but he eats a *lot* more fruits, vegetables and anti-cancer foods (eattodefeat.org). He gets TCM treatment 2-3 times a week and takes supplements recommended by complementary specialist/physician. I'm here to keep up with news/research and get support as a caregiver.
