My dad has stage IV lung cancer. I'm needing something to uplift my spirits. His oncologist says that they have 3 ways to treat with chemo. If plan A doesn't work, then go to plan b, if that doesn't then to c, if that doesn't work, then he will be very sick. Right now he is on plan c. His blood count keeps dropping, that's why he keeps changing the chemo. This does not sound right to me for some reason. I understand that the blood count needs to be high but to switch from one that was working sounds stupid. His tumor count was at 4 now it is at 9. So it's starting to come back.
Somebody please give me some advice about this, thinking this dr. is a quack for switching from the first chemo. Thanks for your time.
