update on dad


Recommended Posts

It seems the chemo was not working. The tumors in the brain got worse and same with the tumor in the lung. The radiation done on the bones was also not successful. He is now being put onto Tarceva. Has anyone been on Tarceva long term?

Iam so sorry for everything you dad is going through. I persoanlly could not help you with the tarceva but there are many people on here who have taken or are still taking the tarceva.

I pray this works for him. Just give him all the love and support that you can.

Good luck,

Sorry to hear about the progression of the disease. I don't think you will find too many people who have been using Tarceva long term, because it is still a relatively new drug. It does seem to be having some wonderful results though, and my understanding is that it can be taken indefinitely.

I hope it works wonders for your Dad.
