As I had mentioned earlier, my husband was started on 100mg of Tarceva. This is his 9th day today and by God's grace he has not suffered any side effects so far.
However I am very happy to report that his symptoms have decreased considerably. His respiration ha improved, his bone pains have minimised to the extent that he is not on pain meds anymore. The Samarium radio therapy has also been deferred as th bone pain is no longer an issue:)
Apart from resolving of symptoms we have no empirical evidence on the disease position, but I hope this men's the disease is also responding.
My questin is in such a scenarion is dosage increase more beneficial?
His mutation tests have still not come. It may take another 10 days as we were told the hospital gave the tissue to the Quest lab only yesterday :( We were expecting the results on Monday, but the hospital kept the tissue and the cell block for more than 10 days without handing over to the lab.
