Did I tell you that my mom is responding to the gemzar, cisplatin, and avastin combo she started a week ago? Already, her lymphedema is almost gone (her feet, ankles, and calves were huge prior to this chemo due to lymphedema), her pleural effusion fluid has decreased dramatically, and she was able to get away on a vacation this week.
What a relief to see that this new chemo is showing promising results already!
(For those of you new to this board, my mom was diagnosed with PPC 2+ years ago. Stage IV.)
