debbren Posted February 2, 2008 Share Posted February 2, 2008 My mom has now had 2 tx with Carbo/Taxol, tolerated well. She is on cumadin for a pulm. emb. and being a Nurse Practitioner myself, I was very keen to have her have the option of Avastin as well (my father in law survived 6 yrs with stage 3-4 NSCLC, used Avastin in the trial phase-had ruptured intestines to put it bluntly, but he lived much longer than they expected) After reading the "Moss Report" on Avastin , it doesn't sound that rosey actually. Not the results according to many "studies" that I had been hearing,or hoping for. My sister in law has glioblastoma (brain tumor), and despite her having blood clots in her leg, on blood thinners, she is taking Avastin in combination. So...my real question is...how many of you, despite having clotting issues, where put on Avastin, and how is it going? Thank you so much.....Debbie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
