CT Shows Imaged lung bases are clear... I won...sort of...


Recommended Posts

I am about to start chemo for Liver Cancer. Topotecan (Hycamptin) 3 weeks on 1 off with Neulasta day after last dose in cyle...


Control/Maintenance: Symptom Management.  SCLC was tough enough to battle...   8/13/2014-1/27/2015


My Ong says this is probably a genetic thing... No cure, but??? What has been the reactions of anyone who is/has been dealing with this.  I am still feeling great and will begin the new chemo Feb 9... Would appreciate any feedback...this was so not expected.

Only 5 months of treatment, sounds like so far you have had a very good response to the chemo if your lung bases are clear.


I never have heard of genetic SCLC. 


Hope the liver responds well to this new plan, keep us posted.


I have a friend who is over 15 years of surviving SCLC, wish you the best also.

Lost the battle with liver and adrenal cancers. They grew faster and larger than treatment could handle. The 14th all treatment ended. I am now on hospice. Dr. Would deny metastatic cancer... trying to get all my ducks in a row. I have no answers, yet. Trying to make it to June or July. I can no longer cook. Trying to sell as much as I can for a trust fund for my daughter. I have a super team and great friends, trying to pick up the pieces. I am sorry I haven't been on line for big. Will try to do better. It's a battle I thought I won.... foolish me...
