Hello again, my mom started her chemo of carboplatin and Alimta. I was curious who out there has used this combo and what were your experiences with it? Also, i read that chemo in stage iv patients only extends life by weeks? is that true? I wouldnt think it could be considering there are many people with advanced cancer living for years.. I just want some straight answers from someone about this. My mothers doctor (although the best in town) has not been very helpful in offering info at this point and my Mom I think is reluctant to ask questions right now. Is it worth all the side effects if it only extends life by weeks?? Anyones advice, comments..etc are greatly appreciated! Thank you!
