... has been diagnosed by a stage 4/NSLC adenocarcinoma of the lung at end of september 2010. it involves both lungs and lymphonodes but did not spread around (there is a suspect on the iliac bones tough, a very small <1 cm2 area)

at the beginning i did not realize how much serious this illness was, now i am desperate since i see that the prognosis is generally bad and i cannot think about she will pass away shortly :-(

she had two sessions of therapy with alimta+cisplatinum combo, with good results i think: dispnea disappeared almost totally, but there is still some cough left, and a third session in planned for xmas eve and a new scan is planned for mid-january

actually she is in good conditions but i understand things could change shortly ...

oncologist did not disclose too much, just saying to wait how she react to the terapy.

sorry for my english (i am writing from italy) and thanks to all of you

a sad christmas and an possibly worse new year is coming ...
