I have NSCLC EFGR exon 19 deletion and had 2 VATS, Tarceva and have been on Tagrisso for over 20 months. I have been on a two week break because of suspected interstial lung disease. My breathing has improved but I won't have another CT for 2 more weeks. My oncologist has not prescribed steroids or antibiotics and said he is very unsure of how to proceed. I understand that this complication is reasonable rare (less than 4%) but that it can be fatal. I am looking for input or resources on how to proceed immediately with the pneumonitis (other than stopping the Tagrisso) and what to do long term. Thank you for whatever assistance or input you can provide.
