Guest Posted September 11, 2003 Share Posted September 11, 2003 My 43 year old sister Terri was told on her 43rd birthday last week (Sept 4) that she had Stage IIIb lung cancer. It's on 2 nodes and her right lung and around mediastinium area. MD said to try the clinical trial drug Iressa. Have read that it shrinks the tumor, but doesn't offer any extended life. I need to advise her quickly to get started, but side effects look horrible. Any advice would be surely appreciated. Jackie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
