Fay A. Posted January 5, 2005 Share Posted January 5, 2005 In my opinion Tarceva 100mg will behave exactly as Bill describes. IMO Tarceva 150mg will be the equivalent of a strong face and body chemical peel from the inside out. And I don't care how I look as long as I can breathe easier and live longer. Right now I resemble ground round from the bottom of my neck to the top of my crown, but the breathing easier seems to be working. Time will tell about living longer. I am not going to hide away. The whole point of doing this is so I can live longer, but it won't be much of a life if I spend it in my house or bedroom. I know it is uncomfortable for people to look at me (I look gross), but if it's too much for them they can either focus on my eyes, or avert their eyes, or they can avoid me entirely. Let THEM be the ones to hide in their houses if seeing me is too much for them. But I am NOT going to hide from the world. The first thing I do tell anyone who is seeing me like this for the first time is that what I have is not something infectious that they can catch (hey, it relieves a lot of concerns. I would be worried if I met someone who looked like this). And the second thing I tell them is that the skin condition is a result of a lung cancer treatment. And then I tell them they can ask any questions of me they want to ask. I have met 3 new people this week alone who have family members with Lung Cancer, who took down the info I could give them on Tarceva, and GVAX. They will be looking into options for their family members. And two of them have computers and will be coming here at some point. So.....I sure hope Tarceva buys me some easy breathing and a lot more time. And I'll focus on what I can see instead of how I look. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
