I have been off the discussion board for about 1 week now as we've been waiting for all the reports to come back in.
We celebrated 1 small victory when the liver ultra sound came back clear so we are very grateful that her liver is clean.
Today, however, we received the preliminary PET report and it showed that the NSCLC has mets to the bones (involving the spine in the lower back and in the back of the neck area).
Today is her 1st day of chemo and I'm using the hours to begin our hunt for any information on successful treatments of Stage IV nsclc w/ mets to the bone, any stories, advice, referrals out there?? (She's doing a combo of Carboplatin and Taxol... depending on how that goes the oncologist is considering radiation on the bones areas, but that's later).
Any help is much appreciated... my Mom is so amazing and has a quiet inner peace with how she is handling everything. We are praying every night and would love any suggestions.
All the best,
