My father has nsclc stage IV. Primary tumor was baseball size and found in the left lung with one spot on the left kidney and several lymph nodes in mediastinum and base of neck. He started 6 weeks of radiation which he has completed along with weekly carboplatin. He was unable to receive taxol or docetaxol due to an allergic reaction. Follow up scans 3 weeks after radiation show very little shrinkage of tumor along with additional spot on his liver, adrenal gland, other lung and within the same lung. He will be starting Alimta soon.
Anyone have any experience with Alimta and what results have you received from it?
