Hello All, my Mum was diagnosed: stage 4 NSCLC, metastasis to spine and lymph nodes. It was a shock to the whole family as she was asymptomatic.
Mum has just started her 2nd cycle (Gefitinib). Her alanine transaminase shot to 318. Stopped Gefitinib for 5 days and it dropped to 250, so it's moving in the right direction. Restarted Gefitinib again.
She has since developed pain on the left side of her abdomen. There's a constant dull pain and every now and then, there's a stabbing pain. There's no particular activity that brings the pain on. Doctor prescribed codeine.
Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know what causes it?
