I'm NSLC stage 4 and currently under chemo Alimta Avastin combo. I would like to know if anyone has received a treatment Alimta Avastin Tarceva combo instead of Alimta Avastin combo or Tarceva combo? If YES, what are the effects? Thanks in advance.

My mother was just diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer and they believe it is Adenocarcinoma with Bac features. Because she has BAC they feel that Tarceva alone should work and then if it fails they will start chemo. Do you know the specific kind of lung ca that you have? She just started on her medicine this week so we don't know anything about it yet.
