Hi, I'm Russ

Hi folks, my name is Russ and I have been treated for this disease since 05-17 and am still in chemo treatment. I have had 5 different Chemo drugs and 1 Immunotherapy drug called Opdivo. Does anyone have or have had this type of cancer that could offer some input or opinions. I would be grateful and appreciative, Thank You

Hi, I'm Arby

Thanks for reaching out. I was diagnosed with limited SCLC this May and my small (approximately 2 cm) tumor was treated with 5 SBIR sessions of radiation. That was followed by 4 cycles of chemo consisting of 3 days of infusions every 21 days x 4. Chemo combo standard tax for limited SCLC: Cisplatin + Etoposide. I’m awaiting scans to see how it worked, so I’m afraid I have nothing to share with you. I just wanted to say thanks for reaching out and hang in there! I’m male, age 63.
