My name is Felix. My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 NSCLC Adenocarcinoma in November 2013. She is 61, not a smoker and was diagnosed EGFR-,ALK-.
The main tumor is in the lower right lobe 5.7cm*5.5cm with multiple enlarged lymph nodes.
There is also a met on the spine(Vertebra C7).
She started 4 rounds(every 3 weeks) of Carboplatin/Paclitaxel/Bevacizumab, without any significant side effects. The results after 4 rounds where a decrease in all the enlarged lymph nodes and the main tumor decreased to maximum 1.8 cm.
Her oncologist stopped the chemo treatments and recommend that she continue with the maintenance Bevacizumab(every 3 weeks) with checkup CT's after every two treatments.
Would you recommend stopping the treatment so early, while it is still effective?
Is it possible to continue this treatment later on?
Thank you very much for taking the time,
