Hey there – diagnosed six months ago with Stage IV CUP, just started 3rd round of chemo – taxol/carboplatin combo -( had slightly positive progesteron marker on liver biopsy but nothing else definitive and all organs are clean except for the metatasis in liver and the lymph nodes) - once every three weeks then PET scan. So far – 30-40% overall improvement over intial PET scan before Chemo, now stabilized after 2nd round of chemo. What I really want to know – who is the leading ongologist in the USA for this? My oncologist is absolutly fabulous – but as you all know this can be a crap shoot. She is mostly breast cancer specialist, faculty at Georgetown University, heavily involved in clinical trials (which I can find none for CUP). Anybody who can help on this would be great. Keep strong everyone. We are not average – and that’s a good thing. Carol
6 months in & still strong
