well, and don't know if the side effects are worth it. My nonsmall cell lung cancer has matasticized to brain, hip, breast and other lymph nodes. This treatment is going to be used to try to hold the new growth in check? I may gain a few more weeks, but how good will I feel for those weeks?
Really, how well is pemetrexed tolerated? I did not tolerate carbonplatin and etoposide very?

Nausea and fatigue are very common. Go to the top of the page to Drugs A-Z and click on it, type in "pemetrexed side effects" and then page down to "for the healthcare professional" and you will see percentages of occurrence of each side effect. Only you can decide if you want to try the pemetrexed. I'm very sorry you have had this happen to you.
