EVERY 3 WEEKS NOT 36 WEEKS :O)


The cancer started in the lung. It is non small cell. They are treating her with chemo every 36 weeks for 18 weeks. There is a small lesion on the liver also. They will be using radiation to treat the tumor in the brain which they say is a little smaller than a golf ball. She has a port a cath and is home now and goes for outpatient chemo. She goes each day for another injection and I cant recall the name but I think its part of the chemo treatment. She and her family are very optimistic which is great because I believe to that if you dont believe that you can beat it then you wont. I am just thinking in realistic terms and I was wondering what you may think the prognosis could be. They feel they can wipe it out but I guess I just dont know enough about it. Thanks for responding.
