Gavreto? Alecensa? My husband has had shortness of breath from the onset of his treatment for NSCLC. Can you please tell me more details about these drugs? Are they part of your treatment? What was the determined cause of your SOB? (Understood lymph nodes on airway.) Restriction? Obstruction? No one has mentioned these drugs to him, so info is appreciated. Thanks.

This drug was designed for patients with RET positive nsclc. Based on what I've been told only 2% of those with nsclc qualify for this targeted drug. Surgery and radiation therapy were ruled out as part of my treatment plan. SOB was the symptom that drove me to get medical help. Stage four lung cancer was diagnosed from that symptom and multiple tests. Thanks for responding.
