I have stage 4 nsclc being treated with Xalkori for 6 weeks. Had pleural effusion that was drained and talc procedure also. My question is how do we determine if Xalkori is working where except for pleural thickening and effusion, there are no specifice tumors found. My doctor advises that if the effusion is itself reduced, this is a good indication that Xalkori is working, but what if the effusion is not improved,but is about the same?
