Kindly advise My father was diagnosed with small cell lung carcinoma in July 2017. It was in stage 3 b. He started treatment in Delhi State Cancer Institute as he preferred close to home. Chemotherapy was advised weekly. Initially he was able to keep up with weekly schedule but later the blood counts (platelets and wbc) used to be less. So he was given injections of GC and intrabolin. And had Prednisolone once a day. Then the gap of chemo increased to two to three weeks. November pet scan report showed disease under control. But in March he wasn't able to take a single chemotherapy. pet scan done in April showed disease under progression. Currently he is under pain around the pelvic area and back. Sugar is fluctuating. Kindly have a look at the reports and advise if anything can be done to increase the life span. Radiation is planned. Can radiation be given around liver and lung area along with pelvic area? Zolotronic acids drip is planned but we don't have dental clearance. Any Chemotherapy meds are advisable?
