      Good choice for me.
      I was on the carbo/ alimta/ avastin for I think 6 months as first line more than 6 years ago,
      Then I came off of the carbo. I was originally stage 4 to lymph nodes but I made progress.
      Side effects not so great. need heart and blood pressure meds now. Sicker than a dog.
      Developed neuropathy. Treated a lot of the sides at the local acupuncture college.

      Ps. I also had acupuncture every infusion or within day or so. Bf had chemo and sicker than a dog, had acupuncture second time and no issues. Medicare doesn’t cover but my secondary did.

    I was diagnosed in Dec of 2016. Gave away all of my summer clothes thinking I would be gone by summer. Had to buy new ones!! Still here!! Keep fighting. I had great breathing relief from radiation. Now I am on immune therapy. I still have a good quality of life.
