Greetings..my dad has just finished 4 rounds of chemo..the doctors tell us that the cancer is shrinking. They also told him that if he wasnt in such poor health ( heart failure and COPD lung disorder) he would be in good shape. So why arent they giving him more chemo? If he is responding to it why not continue. They not talk about Tarceva I looked it up and it says its for patients who have already taken chemo and the cancer is still progressing. I guess Im a little confused. Can anyone give me info on Tarceva and Ive heard its expensive? Any info on this would be helpful. I find the more research online the more negative info I get. Coming here is always helpful and compassionate.
