Lisa steimetz Posted August 11, 2016 Share Posted August 11, 2016 Hi everyone, my name is Lisa and I was diagnosed with stage 3a adenocarcinoma of the upper right lung on July 29th. I will be starting treatments on Monday which will be cisplatin/alimpta (sp) with 35 rounds of radiation 5/week. All this is with the hopes to get me to surgery. I will have a mediastinal surgery to check lymph nodes after radiation. I now have two nodes involved and one sits on my pulmonary artery. If cancer is found than no surgery. I am so scared, I am 46 years old and the closer treatment gets the more scared I become. Anyone have any huge side effects on these two drugs? Also anyone with stage 3a adenocarcinoma that can add some positive reinforcement for me? Thank you all! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
