Hello - I am new to this site. My husband was diagnosed with SCLC on March 4 and he's undergone 3 IV chemo treatments with carboplatin & etoposide and Aptosyn taken orally during and after the chemo. Is anyone familiar with Aptosyn and its effectiveness? Also, is tenderness to the touch all over the body a common side effect of chemo?
