Re: [MOL] cpt11 side effects

My aunt is going through chemo for Non-small cell carcinoma.  the shortness of breath she experienced was from two things.  Blood clots in the lungs and pressure on her bronchial tubes from the tumor.  I hope all goes well for your husband and you.  Welcome to the forum.  I am farely new myself, and they have been a big help.  God bless you both.
