Karen,My mother has stage IV lung cancer (Squamous cell)! I'm thinking she is on same meds carbo/taxol! She has her next infusion on 10/30/2012 then they will check to see how the chemo meds are working! I am praying really hard for good results! My sister has lung cancer stage IV as well but I do not know what kind....she was on same meds as my mother and was in remission for a very short time before they discovered it in both her kidneys and in a lymph in her neck area! They have now started my sister on a diff drug,I will try to find out what it is.Keep posted on how the drug works for her...thinking of you and your family! Sorry,wish I could help with more info!
