Hello family...We are now faced with chemo starting on Wed.Gemzar/Carbo.My dad has 1 8mm lesion on the S1.Right below the Lumbar 5th vertebre.The doctor actually indicated that it was probably there in 6/11.The PET/CT just really couldn't be sure at that time.Something was suspicious at this time.
I need now to hear if this combo is tolerated by someone outthere,if it's known to work. The doctor did say, that this cancer appears to be a slow grower, as to say if indeed it was there in 6/11, and therre s only 1 lesion, that is indicative that it was responive to the Carbo/Taxol combination.I guess they always use a platinum base chemo in combo with something else.....any insite on that?
Honestly, I think of all of you I have gotten to know through these months,practically daily...I can only wish and pray that your days are filled with some happiness,joys,and positive energy....worry can be consuming.
This is a way to express myself that no one else in my life can really understand..I know you do.....Let me know what you think.....Could he live another year,maybe in comfort.
