My husband was recently diagnosed with stage III B Lung Cancer. He is taking chemo and radiation treatments. He is on Taxol and Carboplatin and has this treatment once a week. He has had six treatments and 22 radiaiton treatments. I feel he is handling it well but I just need to feel that these kinds of treatments are what he needs. I read so much about other chemo like Iressa and Gemzar. I know like everyone one of you that write in wants to know that we are doing everything we can for our loved one. I guess not knowing is the hardest. I just would like feedback from anyone that can relate to this non small cell lung cancer. He is 59 years old and I don't know what to expect. Just totally reaching out for some support because I don't know the survival rates of time or know what to expect down the road. Testimonies from anyone would be helpful.
