My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer 4 1/2 years ago. She has been on Tarceva for 215 weeks (she keeps track) and now has increased nodules showing on chest xray. She will be having a ct scan, then next week we will see her oncologist for results. I'm afraid he will say the tarceva is resistant now and stop it. She is 78 and does not want chemo or radiation, never expected her to be happy to take a pill! It has allowed her to enjoy life and not have to deal with the side effects from chemo and radiation. I'm afraid this is the beginning of the end. 😔
