@shaila1902– Good morning and a warm welcome to Mayo Connect. Thank you for giving more information to Margot. Meeting a new doctor can be intimidating. Would you mind sharing a bit more about yourself? What type of lung cancer do you have?

I have adenocarcinoma of the lung with brain mets.I was on Gefitinib for 18 months but it progressed a bit more in the brain so Dr Wakelee switched me to Tagresso since the past 2 months. Have done Gamma Knife surgery twice for the brain. But side effects overall have been minimal-some nausea-feeling tired etc but not major. I continue to live a full busy day with my work, exercise, meditation and walks-and a focus on the important things in life. I live in Mumbai India. Glad to be on Mayo Connect
