My mom was diagnosed with unoperable squamous nsclc in stage IIIB in Feb '12. Her first chemo was carboplatine mixed with another one that I can' t remember its name right now. She also had 35 rad on her chest. The results were quite good: stable disease. In Nov '13 it progressed and sge had 6 cycles of Docetaxel. Results were good, she' s been with stable disease and had some shrinking until now.
Today she had her six month scan and we' ll see what happens next week when she' ll visit the onc.
What I wanted to know is if there is any possibility to remain stable for more time, with no manteinance chemo? Can this stability situation last for long time? I hope you can share good news with me 'cause all of you know how these days of waiting are. I wish you the best to you all!
