Hi Izzy (may I call you that
I wanted to make sure someone responded back to you on your second questions. I can't answer this question because you saw that mine was not SCLC, but if no one responds here, it doesn't mean there aren't people that haven't responded well to first line.
I don't know if you saw anyone refer to a site many of us belong to called cancergrace.org? It's http://cancergrace.org
That site has Oncologists that offer up good information to enhance what you have been given by your doctors. While they will not give medical advice or diagnose, they can give you valuable input and answer questions like the one you pose here. They are kind, gracious and very caring. This site has been invaluable to me when I just needed further back up of what my doctors were telling me.
If you open an account there, we'd like you to use the user name you have here "izzyleung" so we know it's you and can offer help there too. Obviously you don't have to but we like it!
Anyway, I recommend posing this question there and seeing what the good doctors can say about this.
