I've not left a blog before or a question. I have recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer, at 44 and never smoked I am obviously very scared. I have been told there is no cure and no chance of an operation. I have completed 6 sessions of chemopherapy (pemetrexed, avastin and carboplatin) . I thought that would be it, however, have been told in order to prolong my life I need to remain on chemo indefinitely (avastin and pemetrexed). I started this on Tuesday and thought the side effects would be less as I was stopping the carboplatin, but they are not. Does anyone know if this will improve over time and is it OK to remain on chemo long term. My oncologist is lovely but I am struggling today and feeling very emotional and afraid.
Any help or advice greatly appreciated x
