RandaS Posted April 20, 2017 Share Posted April 20, 2017 Good Morning! My father just got diagnosed with Stage IV NSCLC. We all feel (family and father) got hit by a mack truck with the diagnosis. He was admitted into the hospital with possibly pneumonia and came back Cancer positive. He had fluid in the lungs that was drained and now he has a catheter to drain his lungs as needed. He went with the Oncologist and found out that it had spread to his bones, upper abdominal lymph nods and right lung. He also needs to gain some weight because he is smaller built. He will start Chemo (Carboplatin & Paclitaxel) in May. Has anyone had experience with these two medicines? What can I expect? What kind of foods should be avoided? What would be great food to eat? I have been googling a lot but figured I would come to you all and see if you had any suggestions. Any information you are willing to share I will be eternally grateful for. I will gladly inform you of more info if needed to help answer my questions. I am thankful for groups like this. Mally 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
