  1. Just to say that Barry had really good results with alimta, it pushed the cancer back for quite a long time. Jennie
  2. HELLO I'm Jennie married 35 years to Barry. Live in the UK a place called Harpenden 30 miles north of London. 3 daughters aged 33 30 and 18. 2 lovely grandchildren Retired college teacher. have been coming here since Barry was diagnosed with advanced adeno in April 04. Am so grateful for this site.
  3. Summer 04 we were told to enjoy that summer and little to be done. Well Barry is still here and we have done much and seen much during this time. Jennie
  4. I an so sad to read this. Please accept my condolences. Rochelle and Johns postings have helped so much in the past and I simply believed he would continue. Jennie
  5. Barry had six rounds beginning summer 06. The cancer shrunk significantly. Progression noted June this year. Back on Alimta (with avastin). Four rounds more fatique this time. Scan in next week or so. Good luck Jennie
  6. I was speaking to a lady today who had been on iressa for over four years. She told me that she also has injections of mistletoe twice a week. Has anyone had any experience of adding mistletoe to treatments (tarceva or any other). Best wishes Jennie

    WONDERFUL. WONDERFUL NEWS. We need more news like this. Jennie
  10. I used to be proud to be British but now I am ashamed of this country. I do not think the British really have any idea of what a situation like this is actually like. It is only when you suffer directly that you discover the horrors of this government. We are lucky so far we have the resources to have private treatment.Barry has been going for over three years now leading a normal existance. If we had stuck with the first nationalised health care oncologist I do not think this would be the case. Disgusting isn't it. Jennie
  11. Hi Randy It is good that some common sense has prevailed. Let us hope the same thing happens with Tarceva. The UK system of health is in a mess. Jennie
  12. Hello I have been missing your posts and was pleased to read that all is stable. Very best wishes Jennie
  13. We saw a sugeon before the oncologist. Jennie
  14. Barry had this combo and there was significant shrinkage. Side effects for him were not too bad either. Jennie
  15. Randy thanks again for thinking of us Brits. There is an appeal against the Tarceva decision the beginning of JUNE. Barry is the patient representative. He is a three year survivor. We are lucky we have the resources to get tarceva and avastin and he is currently leading a normal life (apart from the worry). Will keep you posted. Jennie
