    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.

    what's the adjuvant therapy. I just finish my radiation and chemo therapy and my oncologist told me that I will XXX more chemo because the tumor did not go completely away. I think he described it as a second line chemo treatment.

    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.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): At the begining I acted as if the doctor didn say anything to me. I was like a dennial stage. I did not want to think about it.
