StrahDawg Posted November 29, 2011 Share Posted November 29, 2011 Well it's been a few years but unfortunately I am back and hoping to get a little feed back on my next step. Last month at my check up I found out that my met in my lower back was active again and we needed to do 10 days of radiation. I've since completed the radiation but the Doc. also wanted a PET scan done. Upon further review my other met in my pelvis also showed some uptake. His recommendation now is either trying the alimta again once every 3 weeks along with zometa every other treatment or a fairly new drug that I'm finding out is pretty incredible called crizotinib. What I want to know from you my fellow experts who have to go thru this hell is this crizotinib as effective and easy to handle as they say? Also and I thought this was kind of odd but my Doc. said he sent my tumor out almost a year ago and that the crizotinib worked on it. Do they normally do this?
