I am new to the group. Please forgive errors. My brother has been on Iressa for several months. I am worried because he is losing weight, lack of appetite, extreme fatigue. I know these are side effects, but am wondering how long they will go on. He is very thin and although the cancer is responding to this treatment, he is very weak and fatigued. Also suffers unusual bruising and coughs more than he used to. Anyone got any input on this?
