We are terribly worried about brain mets. His last MRI of the brain was Oct. 
25.  He is also tired all the time.  All in all, he was much better on the 
taxol/carbo, the only side effect being neuropathy--of course, >  that didn't

Bess, odd -- my father had ALL those side-effects - and more - with the taxol 
and carboplatin!  He remained on it anyway, however and it proved to do a 
very good shop shrinking the tumor, but that was after 6 months of treatment. 
His bone pain was in his back however, not collarbone.  We too, suspected 
brain cancer and were terrified - his mood swings and vision problems were 
worrisome to us.  But the brain tissue was and remains clean, thank God.
