Hi out there. I am a 68 year old man who has had 5 cancers in 18 or so years. Just started my first of 4 treaments with Cisplatin and Pmetrexed for Stage 3A lung cancer to be followed by radiation. This is my first time with chemo. I feel like something has inhabited my body and have heard that the side effects are cumulative. Wondering if anyone out there can tell me what I might expect and things that have helped to curb the side effects. 

Would appreciate any feedback. Thank you and best to all..

Hi Steven,

Welcome to CSN.  I think you will get better response to your inquiry if you post it in the "lung cancer" discussion board.  I think you will find more people who can help and relate to the specific chemo drugs you mention.  Another thing you can do is click on the search area and type in some key words to find other discussions.  Good luck to you.  I'm sorry I cant help more.
