I have a squamous, non small cell that my oncology team made a point of telling me (or my siblings really) that this is terminal, no chance of remission. Then I was prescribed what was described as the last ditch chemotherapy, just trying to control the spread of the tumors in my primary lung. The worse part, is the side effects are akin to the two rounds of Carboplatin/Abraxane- Carboplatin/Gemcitabine.Body and joint pain,tummy pain,having to move in slow motion, zero energy,food bland,living on soup and nutrient drinks. The gawd awful bloody mucus plugs in plentitude. I have great support from siblings and my family. But this is some scary crap as my pulmonary system is steadily shutting down. How long do I have? I really don't want to know.
