My mum has non small cell adino carcinoma, she was diagnosed in November, which was a massive shock and has left us all reeling. She's had a rough time since, with biopsies etc. She started chemo in Jan. but had a terrible reaction and it also didn't work so she is now on Tarceva, as of 3 weeks ago. It's not making her anywhere near as ill, but she does have a chest infection and at her appointment today found out there is fluid on her lung and she is very anaemic. She is having a blood transfusion tomorrow and her lung drained on Tuesday. I'm assuming this is quite common, but it is still hard to see her suffering. We're hoping the two procedures will really help give her a boost as she has been getting very down due to the constant pain etc. Does anyone have any experience of Tarceva? It's nice to get some of this stuff of my chest so you may find I am on here often now I know there are people out there who will understand.
