Hi all. I am a caregiver for my mom. She has NSCLC with mets to the brain. One tumor in the right lung and one in the middle of her cerebellum in her brain. She has gone through all of the radiation she can have to her lung and had chemo once a week throughout all of her radiation treatments. She has also had stereotactic radiation to the brain as well. Now she gets a 3 week break and will have chemo once a month with double doses for 4 months. They will be using a chemo drug call Alimta. Has anyone heard of this drug or has had it with chemo? It will either be with cisplatin or carboplatin, I am not sure which.
Happy Easter to everybody!!!
