Why did you have to start chemo when you were already on Tagrisso?

You will find it to be a lot simpler than chemo! And there could be some rash but it goes away. If you have any concerns I would be happy to talk to you about them. Glad you were foound suitable for this TKI. The new studies show very good results specially for 3 A patients. I am a 4C

Sorry just saw this question about diet. No, not really. But eat at fixed times ,simple food . Use anantacid Gelusil and some stretching exercises, walking ,meditation help a lot. How are you?

Since I started it in Nov 2018 there are no new mets or tumours

Its worked so far for me. No new mets and lung tumours under control. All the trials show good results. And what a blessing that we have a targeted therapy and do not have to get chemo.

Quite minimal. Some rash and increased stool frequency for a few days. But it settles down. The platelet count went down but remained within normal levels. How are you feeling?

Hi, I have been on Tagresso since Nov 2018. I have lung cancer stage 4 with brain mets.

Hello @sakota
I have had several brain MRIs in the past 2 years since the mets were discovered in April 2017-do it every 3 months. Its very simple and not at all bothersome. In fact if small tumours show up they are easily controlled with the cyber knife treatment which is completely painless (I have done it twice). No side effects and feeling good.
I feel its better to know while the tumours are small as there are so many treatment options now.
Wish you all the best for your tests
