I had posted something about Avastin before but no responses. Thought I'd try again.
My husband was diagnosed with sclc in January. Also mets to his spine & brain. He had 2 weeks of radiation to spine & brain. The lesions had almost disappeared. Then he started chemo for the Lung cancer. He had one treatment with 3 chemos, one which was Avastin. Before the next chemo he started coughing up blood. Had a MRI and the doctor said the tumor was shrinking so we were encouraged. He had the second chemo without Avastin cause that was causing the problem. Well it was too late the damage was already done. He hemmorraged to death on March 25th. Guess it was a very "rare" side effect. But there must be someone out there who's had this. Would appreciate hearing if anyone has heard of this happening.
