My mum has been in hospital for a week now with chronic diarrhoea caused by chemo. She had a scan on Wednesday. She has had 3 gruelling rounds of carboplatin & pemetrexed for her stage IV NSCLC. We were delivered the blow on Friday that the chemo hasn't helped at all & the lung tumour has grown quite a bit. We are devastated that it hasn't helped & we're really confident it would at least be stable. Just wondering what next? She is not positive for Alk mutations or the E (can't remember all the letters). We will be seeing the consultant Tuesday after their MD meeting to discuss things. Can anybody please advise me what to expect next?
Thanking you all in advance & sending you all good well wishes for fighting this **** disease!
