Customer Question
Husband has small cell...

Husband has small cell lung cancer June 2016 had chemo and radiation treatments as well as radiation to brain.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

Yes, his last ct scan shows a cloudiness around the lungs and still a very small growth (the first mass was 9.2 cm).

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Some pain and numbness in hands and feet. Should he have more treatments. I have read that sometimes more chemo does not always necessarily work.

Sorry to hear about that. So how many cycles of chemo he had? What combination was used ? Did it completely clear the cancer ? After how long did this mass reappeared following chemo?
