Anyone have experience with Topotecan?


Recommended Posts


My dad has mets to the liver now. Doc wants to start Topotecan with possible radiation pending pelvic x-ray results. Curious of the side effects. Doc suggested a a 30 min. infusion five days a week for a month. This is getting pretty upsetting. I'm not too optimistic. Would appreciate any thoughts. Thanks.


Dad diagnosed 01/04 Extensive stage SCLC

Pleural Effusion

Received six cycles of Carboplatin and Etoposide

First scan showed shrinkage to primary tumor

Second scan revealed 3 lesions on liver
