Hello all, I found this site and recently registered.. What a wonderful site full of compassion and information. My wife of 44 (65) years was diagnosed in July with Stage IV lung cancer that spread to her brain, adrenal gland, and femur. She has just finished her 4th round of carbo/taxol, 3 on 1 off. He has planned on 6 rounds prior to maintenance of 3 off, 1 on. Her PET scan last Friday was described by her DR as stable/slightly progressive. Growth of the leison on her adrenal gland and additional "spots" on the liver. He is planning on changing her chemo to a recently FDA approved Abraxane/Gemzar for lung cancer in hopes that the progression ceases. Does anyone have any experience with the protocol?? As her care giver, I am especially interested in side effects and quality of life which I rate as poor now.
