Mayo Clinic Study

In January 2002 they found my small cell lung cancer had moved into my liver. I was started on the Mayo Study of using Topeketen and Paxil together. After five chemo treatments the tumor has shrunk 70%. My Doctors are very pleased cause they only hoped to stop its growth. I was told it can be used as long as I respond to it however the side effects are becoming critical to me.I have very severe Naropothy in my figers and toes. I have been told that if I go beyond six treatments I could need a wheelchair.
Any thoughts,ideas or has anyone been on this treatment program.
