I have read your messages and am impressed. Are you now considered cancer free. I was diagnosed with small cell in both lungs in 1993. I took 6 months of carboplatin and VP16 with decadron for nausea. The tumors shrank but spots were still there. My doctor said it could be scar tissue. In 1995 he said it looked like it was growing so I went with 6 more of the same chemo. 1997 he said since the spots where still there and seemed to be growing again I should have more chemo. This time Taxol and cisplatin 6 months. Since then I have changed my health habits.
I take mega vitamins, herbs and eat plently of fruits and veggies. I am doing well and feel very healtly even though the spots are still there. Did your tumors completely disapear or are you considered in remission due to no growth as I am? Shari
