I have small cells cancer. By the middle of my regular treatment my oncologist informed me that my tumor's size had decreased by 70%. The thing is that by the end of my treatment it did not reduced it's size much more; so I'm in a second line of treatment now. Different meanies and shorter cycles. I hope to have better results at the end of this one.
I'm trying to help now with a better diet and some yoga and exercise.

Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): After several prodedures like X Rays, mediastinoscopy and biopsy, I got my port implanted and got prepared to start treatment. I took several weeks to the dosctors to start my treatment. Those weeks were very long to me and I had the feeling that we were wasting valuable time and allowing the sesease to spread inside of me.
