In Reply to: Re: small cell lung cancer mets posted by artemis on September 16, 2000 at 07:48:08:

I was given 6 months to live once I had lung and liver tumor.
I am citing a number of technical articles that helped me make
my treatment decision. I am lucky that I have a good friend who
is a biochemist in Cancer Research here in Chicago at Abbott Labs.
He helped me wade through a lot of information

My name is Sybil Brabner,

I am a 37 year old BC patient with a VERY POOR PROGNOSIS.
The stat is 3 years and you are gone--technically speaking I am (ER-,
PR-, P53+, Her/2-) nuclear grade 3 (Bloom and Richardson) I was
diagnosed in Jan of 99, Stage IIB, mastectomy, four cycles of
Adrimycin, Cytoxin, and Taxol at one time (ECOG study) 6 weeks
radiation, mets to L2 with fracture by April 1st of 2000, and on August
31st they discovered mets to liver and lung.

The liver mets was 6.1cm x 5.9cm on October 3.

On September 26 I started taking 25mg Cytoxin (orally-I weigh
110lbs) combined with 200mgx2 Celebrex. On my last scan my liver
tumor was 3.4cm x 3.3. Other tumors in my lung and near my spine
have disappeared altogether. Bone mets are stable I have had no side
effects, save for a few hot flushes at night. I am able to eat, exercise,
have not had any immune suppression. I have quality of life, and this is
after the doctors said "6 months to a year max."

I will be happy to email anyone my Nov 2nd Radiology Report to
prove this "interesting result" (my onc's words, he is quite stoic)--
which I have as a text file. I just want to help as many people out there
as I can. You can email me at sbrabner@yahoo.com
