tiredmom959 Posted April 18, 2007 Share Posted April 18, 2007 After my mom's surgery (where they were hoping to remove what was left of the cancer and ended up seeing slightly more than they though), they opted for follow up chemo. The onc said the surgeon had the foresight to test the cancer to see if it would be the type to be receptive to Tarceva ... it was determined that it would not have been. Instead, he put on her six rounds of Alimta (she has had four of those thus far). She has had no side effects from this at all ... even her blood levels have stayed fine, which was NOT the case when she was on her original Carbo/Gemzar regime. Does anyone know much about Alimta? I see alot of people on this site on Avastin. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
