Lydia V Posted December 17, 2016 Share Posted December 17, 2016 Hello to all fellow members. I was diagnosed with stage lV nsclc September of 2015. Initially the prognosis was very bleak. After 3 months of traditional chemotherapy I was found to be a candidate for targeted chemotherapy with the EGFR mutation. I was on Afatanib for 9 months before the T790M mutation showed up. I then started Tagrisso but had to quit after developing a rash that progressed to severe abscesses over about 70% of my body even though I was on Minocycline. After 10 days of IV cephalosporin followed by 2 weeks of oral I’m finally back on Tagrisso (at a lower dose) while remaining on the oral antibiotic. I am maintaining hopefulness. I have had good results with the treatment, I just have to avoid side effects! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
