Re: [MOL] Have you heard of this?

Sheila:  I have been researching the web to find something on your request to no avail.  This does not mean that it's not there.  When you go to Ocono Link, site address listed below they have a section on the side effects of each Chemo Therapy.  I would also suggest that you call NCI 1-800-4-cancer with this questions and information about trials.
I would suggest that a second and perhaps even third opinion be gotten.  Click down and I have all the sites listed for you and good luck.   I know that this is devastating news for all of you and if we may be of further help, please call upon us.  Your friend, Lillian American Association of Health Plans

My brother, with newly diagnosed lung cancer, non small cell, stage 111b, is
deteriorating so fast--20pounds weight loss past month. Started chemo, one
round, but had such pain in ribs--other side from the tumor mass I think.
They have just told my sister-in-law that the cancer(tumor?) cracked a rib-
thus the pain.
Now saying 2 to 6 mo. versus 6-12.  And all this since feeling some back pain
and alittle weaker only about 6 weeks ago.  They said it must have been
growing for a long time.  Have you heard about the cracked rib from cancer?--I
think bone scan just taken doesn't show metastasis to the bone. I am soooo sad
and mad.
