Hello all, A friend has just been dx'd with lung cancer and will be meeting with her onc about radiation and chemo this week. I completed chemo for colon cancer mid August and understand each disease has different types of chemo.
What are the most common chemo drugs used alongside rads for lung cancer? I'd like to be able to help my friend understand and be prepared for side effects. I found knowing what to expect from FOLFOX (Oxaliplatin i.e. severe neuropathy) helped me so much and took away a lot of fear.
Thanks in advance and wishing you all well.
