Hey! This is my first time to post on here. I have stage 4 lung cancer with met. to bones. I was on carbo, alitma, and avastin and after 4 treatments, I had an excellent PET in December. After 2 more treatments, my dr. took me off of carbo. My PET last week now shows my cancer has spread to several spots on my spine, where before it was only in my right arm. It has also spread in tiny spots to my lungs. I was so disappointed and feel naive and stupid for thnking I could get this disease in remission. My dr.had said he thought since I was doing so well, it could go in remission and he would radiate the tumor. I start a new chemo tomorrow. I dont understand why the tumor has not already been radiated or why he took me of carbo. I am just wondering if anybody else has been in this situaton. I am so down and am losing hope.
