Guest Posted February 24, 2004 Share Posted February 24, 2004 Hello! I've spent the last few hours reading this message board and it is filled with wonderful people. My mother was diagnosed with SCLC in April 2003. She has been doing a monthly chemotherapy until January 2004. I am not familiar with her drugs regimine since my father is the primary caregiver. She had a mild seizure two weeks ago while my father was talking with her. He called her oncologist and a mri was performed. Mom's cancer has now spread to her brain. She is doing daily radiation to her head (M-F with a plan of 18 sessions) and weekly chemotherapy. A recent chest cat scan has shown shrinkage of her original tumor sites but two more spots have appeared. It's been very hard dealing with this recent turn of events. We were all hoping and expecting that the chemotherapy would eliminate all of the cells and voila, we'd be done. Mom was diagnosed with Stage 2A colon cancer 5 years ago and shown no signs of recurrence so dealing with cancer again has been difficult. I'm tired of doing research and wanted to read messages from people who have been / are going through this. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
