HI there - I'm a stage IV colon cancer survivor and my mother-in-law recently diagnose with non=small cell adenocarcimona lung cancer with 2.7 cm nodule in one lung and 1.4 cm nodule in other lung and 6 of 9 lymph nodes positive. No cancer anywhere else. They say no surgery and no radiation as it's alredy spread (damn the insurance company). She's going for a second opinion in 2 weeks-out of netwrok.
They want to give her Taxol, Carboplatin and Avastin--every three weeks. Is this pretty standard? What are the side effects?
Any infomation would be most helpful. Thanks, Traci
