My big sister, who has SCLC extensive stage, has had 2 rounds of chemotherapy, & starting her third. (carboplatin & etoposide). The CT scan done after round 2 showed that the largest tumor in her lung (over 7 cm.) has shrunk to less than 3 cm. and one of the smaller lung tumors & a liver tumor are not visible at all! In fact, her oncologist said that, since she is doing so well, she may begin radiation therapy to further shrink the tumors, & I had been of the belief that radiation was not offered to those with extensive stage sclc! I feel happy & encouraged for the first time since her diagnosis, and wanted to share my hopefulness with everyone. :D:D:D
