My mom finished her 6th round of chemo - Cisplatin/Alimta/Avastin - and results showed a 75% decrease in the main tumor and 50% in the lymph nodes in the chest area. There was a significant decrease after the first three treatments, less so after the second three. What does that usually mean?
The doctor is testing her for Tarceva and will couple that with Alimta and Avastin every three weeks for maintenance. Has anyone had similar treatments? What was your experience?
We're happy about the reduction but slightly disheartened that it wasn't that much after getting great news in April (after 3 treatments).
