Well today I have been told that the drug I am taking, Iressa, has stopped working and the tumour has started to grow again. Reading the posts on here I had hoped that this drug would work for a bit longer but everyones's different. I've only been on it for about 7 months but they have been good months where life has carried on pretty much as normal.
I now have to go down the traditional chemotherapy route on Carboplatin & Pemetrexed which I'm not looking forward to - but you have to keep trying. I know there are other possibilities down the road and new drugs are being developed all the time so I move on to stage 2 and see what happens.
