My husband was disgnosed with lung canfter the end of April. After all the tests, he had one very large tumor (8cm) in his lower right lung and no known metastisis. He was scheduled for a bilobectomy for mid June but it was delayed because he got extensive obstructive pneunomia and was hospitalized for 5 days. He did have a successful bilobectomy on July 1st. The surgeon removed the lower and mis lobes. Final pathology reveled that three of the hilar lymph nodes that were removed during the surgery were malignant.
We met with my husband's oncologist yesterday The plan is for 4 cycles of cisplatin and taxotere. Does this make sense? From what I've been able to find, taxotere doesn't seem to be a preferred choice and doesn't often seem to be a choice for squamous. We do have an appt next week with the oncologist to ask additional questions before beginning the chemo.
