There are a few combos that most likely will be more effective for lung mets than Gemzar alone. The first that comes to mind are Folfirinox or Gemzar and Abraxane.

I've been dealing with lung mets for over 2 years now and have been on a few different combos in that time. At times they have grown a little and other times they shrank a little. Overall I have been and remain stable and see no reason I might not be that way for many years to come, the trade-off is that I'm on chemo almost all the time but I've learned to manage most of the side-effects well enough to have a good quality of life.

Wishing the best for you, there is still hope.
