DollyPardonMe Posted June 26, 2004 Share Posted June 26, 2004 Hi. I would like to introduce myself my name is Dolly. My husband is the one with cancer, he is a white male, 52 years old and was a heavy smoker for about 30 + years (he quit smoking in Oct. 2003). He has lung cancer (adenocarcinoma). I'm looking for information on the drug Iressa. He was diagnosed in May 2003 with Stage IV. He has taken taxol & carboplatin (6 treatments) with good results (shrinkage approximately 50%). In Feb of this year cancer starting growing again and was taking gemzar or something in that family of chemo drugs. Scans showed it's now growing again and Dr. suggests Iressa to hopefully hold the growth. We are current waiting for insurance to ok this prescription. Perhaps someone on this board has been through this scenario and can shed some light on this subject for us. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
