Lynparza is for BRCA positive ovarian cancer, is this what you have?
I am TNBC and BRCA2+ and meet with my onco next week but was also informed I would most likely be on Lynparza.
Wow, I had not heard that one yet, I didn’t know it had been approved for breast cancer yet.
Thank you for sharing.
I look forward to hearing about your experience with this new drug. I am praying for easy.
Will you come back and share with me?
Just spoke with Onco and we're starting the process to get insurance approval and payment assistance with Lynparza – Onco said probably be on it for only 1 year. Her thought is start at lowest dosage then work our way up in dosage as we see my tolerance. She believes that if you start at the max dosage and user has bad reaction – they may stop taking rather than reducing dosage. She prefers to start low ensure tolerance is good then increase from there. Thank goodness it's only for one year. As soon as process is complete and I know how I tolerate – I'll update, but that may be a month from now.
Do you know what the lowest dose is?
My first week on it was ok but since then I feel like I have the worse flue ever. My bones hurt, not happy
No I do not.
Brca 2 genetic gene.
