New here

Hi I'm new to this community and have already found reading the posts helpful. I was diagnosed Nov 2015 with stage 4 NSCLC with mets to lymph nodes and pleura. I had radiation last Dec, did a targeted therapy for 4 months and am currently getting carbo/gem for 4 rounds. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with pemetrexed maintenance therapy? How are the side effects?

Thank you for any info JK

  • Hi JK

    Welcome to our forum.

    There is good information on Pemetrexed and the side effects, if you are able to copy and paste this link from the MacMillan Cancer Support website:

    Cancer Research UK has some information on their current trials with Pemetrexed you may find useful.

    Our website is and there is a free nurse led helpline if you wish to discuss anything on

    0800 358 7200.

    We wish you all the best
