A brief history.
2007 - stage 3b NSCLC upper and middle lobectomy right lung.
2011 - metastasis of right cerebellum- 3cm hard mass. Surgery was successful- now stage 4
2012 - prostate removed margins were not clear.
- metastasis of left cerebellum - 2cm hard mass. Surgery only.
- gefitinib for approx 18months
2015 - metastasis of the lower spinal meninges
- recommenced gefitinib .
2016 - stopped Gefitinib due to side effects.
- no visible tumours on MRI and PET scan
- tested positive for EGFR - T790M
At the present time my oncologist wants me to take Tagrisso. My concerns are side effects and is it wise to take this drug if there is no growth to be seen even though there are cells floating around? Any thoughts?
Thanking you in advance.
