Iressa not working, now trying Gemzar?
Unfortunately my husband has not responded to Iressa, the tumors are still growing. A couple on his colar bone have returned and 1 large one on his right lung has not decreased in size. We are now at stage IV. They are discussing the possibilty of radiation as the tumors are pressing against his bone and his back is very sore.(hopefully know soon on this) Also we have 1 drug left-GEMZAR (Gemcitabine). Does anyone have any information on this? Or has anyone been at this stage before-I dont know what to expect?
