My wife is a Stage 4 Lung Cancer survivor. She has had chemo and radiation since 2009. She had a clot develop this past August. She started on Tarceva about two months ago and has had one Pet Scan that suggests that the drug is working -- some slight improvement but also a small area that worsened. After consultation with the oncologist, we decided to continue the treatment. But now, less than a week later, she is totally exhausted. She has difficuluty walking without support -- I am worried that it is the Tarceva. Has anyone else had this sode effect? If so, what is the answer.
Her palliative care doctor will come to us tomorrow. And on Friday we see her oncologist to monitor her blodd (after the clot).
Any thoughts and/or suggestions would be appreciated. Here is my email.
