I am diagnosed with 4th stage Lung cancer in end June '08 . - 6 cycles of chemo with carboplatin + taxol in 2008. - 2 1/2 months of Tarceva from Dec '08 to mid feb '09. - 3 cycles of cisplatin + Alimta from Apr to Mid May '09. - 3 cycles of Alimta from Sept to mid Oct '09.
In Oct '10 , my right lung collapse because of lung fluid build up, proceed to drain out and follow by chemo treatment with Alimta . One cycle in Oct and one more in Nov '10 . So far I am doing fine with the treatment and coping well with the side effect, except for cisplatin. There is not much changes to the size and numbers of tumor in my Lung since first treatment in end July '08 until my recent CT scan in Nov '10 . Doctor have term it as stable . I am so grateful that I have managed to have few short oversea vacation with my family . Cancer is not the end of LIFE, stay happy and have faith in God .
