Ace Posted April 2 Share Posted April 2 Hi all, My 29 year old wife was diagnosed with stage 4 NSCLC lung cancer. My wife was pregnant throughout 2022 and had really bad symptoms such as a chronic migraine, bad pelvic pain, and blurred vision which were all put down to pregnancy symptoms. A couple days after giving birth her vision got really bad - we ended up going to an eye hospital who liaised with our local hospital to get scans expedited and then given the diagnosis 3 weeks after the birth. The cancer spread to her brain (with significant growth), bones, eyes, and liver. She had 10 rounds of palliative radiotherapy to the brain and 1 round to the back/spine. As her type is EGFR exon 19 del, she has been taking tagrisso/osimertinib. It is now been 5 months since on tagrisso and there has been improvement all around. She was on morphine at the start but no more painkillers and there is a bit more normality. We have a super active 2 year old in addition to our new born (who is coming up to 6 months) and are of course terrified for the future. Would love to hear from anyone in a similar situation, other people on tagrisso, people who have progressed. I am watching the blu-945 trials and hoping it gets released soon.
