Drug or Chemo Therapy - greensmythe

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Non-Small Cell, Lung Cancer. Posted on January 10, 2013 View this journey (10 Experiences)

I decided on the the right doctor for me at IU Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis and began chemotherapy ( carboplatin, taxol, and avastin) yesterday. All went well, didn't have any wild reactions ( so far) and was so happy with the people at the hospital. One of my hardest issues was finding the right doctor and medical team to trust and I have found that team there.

I will continue to write more about each experience as time goes on but wanted to touch base here becasue this is where I have found wonderful people who have given their time and wisdom to me, like Shoeless Joe Jackson, Harry, and so many more. It is hard to make these types of desicions when hit with such a tough blow.

Thank heavens for the people here.

    Thank you for the kind words. I am glad I was able to be of some help. And you're right about how lost you can feel and how overwhelming it is just trying to wade through it all when you're so addled. I wish I had known about this site when I got my diagnosis.
