Introducing myself

Recommended Posts

I was surprised to hear from so many people with their different stories. Mine was brief and I will update it.

My husband ,Frank, 63 years old was diagnosed with nsclc in the right lobe with spread to his mediastinum, ribs and hips and liver. He was obviously a Stage 4. He is being treated at MGH in Boston and we do truly appreciate his team. He was lucky to have the EGFR mutation so he was put on a trial with iressa. It waorked for 4 months and then he was changed to tarceva, which he did not tolerate, nor did it work.

After 2 weeks off he was put on carboplatin, taxol and avastin. Monday his scans showed that he was stable and he received his 3rd rxment with this chemo. Today he is exhausted and napping.

We have a great family and lots of support but it is so good to find a group like you.
