    NSCLC w/ to Lymphs
    I wont go through my whole health issues, you can check my bio for that. But as with myself they couldn't do surgery so they chose to hit me hard every 3 weeks for 8 hours with chemo to help reduce the size of the tumors and put the cancer in remission. It worked somewhat, as I have out lived the Docs prognosis. I was diagnosis with stage 4 in both lungs both NSCLC and SCLC w/ the lymphs involved in April 08, although I have a complicated health history I am still here, so dont think that you camn't battle this.
    I was given three types of chemo drug they were Carboplatin, Taxol, and Avastin. They worked and bought me more time, but because of my complicated health I am Hospice now, but I am still going, a positive outlook and family/friend support system means a great deal. I realize that every person reacts to the chemo and other treatments differently, but I am sure they Docs have a treament program worked out for you. Check out my bio to understand why I am Hospice, But believe me you can fight this for a long time with the right attitude and support system.
    And you came to the right place for questions and support on this site.

    Our Prayers and Best to you and Your family,
