I'm new to this site.
I was diagnosed with NSLC 3 1/2 yrs ago. and had differing types of chemo administered. Just recently we had a ct and it showed that my head had some cancer hiding there also so I had to have one week of radiation at Peter Mac in Moorabbin Hospital and now am back on TAXOL. I do get a bit tired during the day but still enjoy some casual work. I do still have numbness in my toes and fingers. I did try a trial of TARCEVA a couple of years ago but couldn't cope with the side effects.
Happy to hear from people with similar problems.
Hi welcome to the site. You may be interested in the group " Ongoing" It is for people like us for whom the battle continues. I also have NSCLC diagnosed September 2009. I had 4 cycles chemo and have been on Tarceva since last december. Took a while to get a grip on the side effects but doing OK now. I am in WA and happy for you to add me as a friend if you would like. Good luck with the treratment hope to hear from you soon.
