After 4 years of being in remission from stage 3b lung cancer, cancer had returned and now dealing with stage 4 cancer. They found a mass on my left adrenal gland, they moved the mass and adrenal gland back in July. I saw the radiaition doctor and he advised that if he did the radation treatments it could end up destorying my kidney, so we are opting to go with just chemo right now. I go for my first treatment tomorrow, and the drugs will be Alimta/Cisplatin. Has anyone had this combination of treatment and did you have any serious side affects? In 2013 I had chemo and radiation treatments, but only loss my hair and nasuea, should I expect more?
