Well...exactly 2 months after diagnosis Lyle had his first chemo treatment and today will be his third radiation treatment. I guess we are finally underway. Due to his kidney failure he is receiving Taxol only. We are praying that just one drug is enough. I see on this board that so many of you or your loved ones are on multiple drugs. I know we can only do what Lyle's body will tollerate...but can I just say that I'm scared we aren't treating it agressively enough? Also, he had chemo today and then dialysis in the morning...just seems like the chemo won't be able to work long enough...I don't understand how it works...so maybe it doesn't have anything to do with the blood filtering process. Our understanding is that the first treatment can be the easiest on a person. What should I look out for...and how can I best care for my hubby?
