    Procedure or Surgery

    My father has had two major surgeries to remove parts of both lungs. The first surgery was really a huge one and he did really well. He's a tough, tough guy. The second was good and he has survived for going on 5 years. They recently found cancer in his lymphnodes, left lung and diaphram. He started chemo again on Wednesday, August 24th.

    Went as Expected: Agree

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My Dad started chemo again Wednesday, August 24th. The last round had him feeling pretty badly so we're hopeful that this new drug he's on will not have the side effects. I'd love to hear if anyone else has any experience with cell mapping chemo?
