My mother has stage IIIA NSCLC, and will start her third of four rounds of chemo next week, followed by surgery in March. She has tolerated the chemo quiet well - her hair started to fall out right before her 2nd dose, but besides fatigue, she has not lost weight, her blood counts have been normal (she's had the nuelesta chaser each time), and her appetite has been great except for two days after each treatment.
I know these are good signs just for the fact she can continue treatment. But, are these signs that the chemo is working? I know we won't know for sure until the cat scan before her surgery.
Thanks for your advice, and god bless!
