Topic: Chemo called Tarceva
Johns oncologist has put him on Tarceva. Has anyone used this before and if so what were the results?
The oncologist said it was supposed to stop the growth of the tumors. I was told it only had a 10-15% chance of working.
He is having only one side effect and that is extreme burping and passing gas. He burps all night long while sleeping and all day every time he eats.
Whatever you can tell me would be helpful. He is still losing weight but he is a fighter. He refuses to give up.
The oncologist said the only other chemo she had was taxotere but she thought it would probably kill him due to it's harshness.
