Sis Posted August 31, 2006 Share Posted August 31, 2006 Hello everyone. I just stumbled onto this site and it seems like a very helpful place to be. My sister was diagnosed with stage IV nsclc in June. We live 2,000 miles apart and we both are terrified. She is currently on Tarceva, as well as carboplatin & gemzar. Recently hospitalized for fever and infection (for 2 days) at which time they gave her a new CT scan. We are now awaiting results of this test. I have so many questions I would like to ask of you all, and hardly know where to start. I would love to hear from anyone who has taken Tarceva and any positive results from this drug. She is having very severe side effects (MAJOR rash) which only seems to subside if her doc takes her off for a week. I look forward to reading all the informative posts on this site, and will hopefully learn more information on this horrible disease.
