conley Posted May 2, 2004 Share Posted May 2, 2004 Good Morning! It is a sunny day here in upstate New York, in more ways than one. My husband had his CT scan consultation after completeion of his Chemo/Radiation. His onc said there is significant shrinkage in his tumor and he is "going for a cure". He his recommending three rounds of chemo/Cisplatin/V16...three weeks off and another three rounds of the same drug, to pick up any cells that might have mutated during his first line therapy of Carboplatin/Taxol. After his last chemo/radiation his white cell was extremely low he developed pneumonia and anemia at the same time. He spent four days in the hospital over Easter and also received two units of blood. He has improved and feeling much better. This week he starts the second chemo and I am a little anxious that he will continue to feel well. Has anyone on this list ever had the three day chemo in a row? If so, what should we expect as far as complications or discomforts? Judy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
