Well, after 6 sessions of cisplatin/etoposide, my hubby's lung mass and liver lesions had been reduced about 75%, according to his doctor, a very good response. So good that they encouraged him to have the WBR to further help his survival. So 3 weeks after the radiation we have received the results of the CT scan. The mass in his lungs and the lesions in his liver are pretty much back to the size they were when first diagnosed. And since it has not even been quite 3 months since his first chemo, based on research, the "topotecan" chemo will not be administered as it has proven not to be effective so soon after the firstline chemo.
Bless you all,
