I just got an email from my doctor and he said it looks like the Tarceva is starting to shrink my bone met. I have been taking it for 50 days now and I am happy with this news. I had a scan yesterday and when I saw the spot on my spine was still lit up I was so worried that the drug was not working. The tech said neither one of us was trained enough to determine if there had been improvement so I should wait for the doctor's impression. Then he whispered, "it looks better than the last scan". I did not have my hopes up, but I am very happy to have the good word from my oncologist! What a great guy to email me at 8:00 on a holiday/Friday night! Thank you for your good wishes and prayers on my behalf.
