My lung cancer

Hello everyone, I'm new to this site. I was diagnosed with NSLC 3 1/2 yrs ago. and had differing types of chemo administered. Just recently we had a ct and it showed that my head had some cancer hiding there also so I had to have one week of radiation at Peter Mac in Moorabbin Hospital and now am back on TAXOL. I do get a bit tired during the day but still enjoy some casual work. I do still have numbness in my toes and fingers. I did try a trial of TARCEVA a couple of years ago but couldn't cope with the side effects. Happy to hear from people with similar problems. Yours truly fumph.
