My dad just found out he had lung cancer on my birthday. In the last week he as undergone a bronch, ct scan and pet scan. His cancer has is in the right lobe, left lobe lymph nodes, liver and bones of the lower back and hip. He received his first round of chemo therapy on Monday. It is a regimin of avastin, almita, carboplatin and xgeva. Has anyone undergone the same chemo? From what I am reading this is just pallative treatment and will extend his quality of life another couple of months to maybe a year. He was given 3 months without the treatment. What can I expect from this chemo?
