I had cancer (stage 3a in my right lung in April 2000.I took Carboplatin and Taxol to reduce the tumor down to 3.8cm before my middle lobe was removed on 28 June. Unfortunately three enlarged lymph nodes (viz.near to the trachea, oesophagus and subcarina) were unoperable because there existed EBVirus. My doctor gave me further chemotherapy of Carboplatin and Gemcertabine. there were no effect. He then wanted to give 2 more treatments of Taxoltere before sending me off to radiation. I only accepted once because I couldn't stand any further.In Octobober and November I went through 30 times radiation.
Has anybody been through the same problem? Could anybody help? It will be much appreciated.
