    Chemo experiences

    I have had three cycles of carbo/etoposide, but each has left me with various side effects, trips to ER, etc...mostly because of pneumonia or low blood counts - Dr is now going to start Taxotere...anybody with experience with this

      I had Carbo/Etoposide but I must say other than one bout of low blood count I was good. I got the neulasta shot and was again good. But many people do very well On taxotere too. But you must stay hydrated and healthy by eating right and staying away from any germs what so ever. I mean any germs and all those around you as well.

      Go to the Bonnie J Addario site and read the booklet on lung cancer.
