My 58 yr old uncle has just been dx on 5/21/03. He began Chemo on 5/28/03. He gets results from MRI/Bone Scan/ Cat Scan on 6/4/03. Is it "normal" for such fast action?
My family is just starting to recover from the loss of my father who had pancreatic cancer for 3 years.
What should I anticipate to happen? I will greatly appreciate open & honest replies & suggestions as to where to get info about this cancer.
I hope and pray for success to all of you & family members who are dealing with cancer.

hi Mary, I have small cell lung cancer,am inremission right now. I was and am inoperable as most sclc people. I received cisplatnum and vp16 first and on second cycle had a bad reaction to cisplatnum and then took carboplatnum, vp16, and taxol for a total of six cycles. I started radiation the fourth cycle and also received six and a half weeks five times a week thru chest, side and back. It is good for onco to move fast, as you know time is important. I hope this has helped some. my e-mail address is handle@nauticom.net if I can help in anyway. God bless Mike also a good chat site at www.oncochat.net
