Squamous cell and Tarceva

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone on this site or if you know of anyone who has stage IV non small cell (squamous cell) lung cancer and is now on Tarceva? My dad had 4 treatments of carbo/taxol and had awesome results with that and doctor put him on maintenance Tarceva which has only been a few days. I am wondering if anyone had positive results?

Karen

Karen,My mother has stage IV lung cancer (Squamous cell)! I'm thinking she is on same meds carbo/taxol! She has her next infusion on 10/30/2012 then they will check to see how the chemo meds are working! I am praying really hard for good results! My sister has lung cancer stage IV as well but I do not know what kind....she was on same meds as my mother and was in remission for a very short time before they discovered it in both her kidneys and in a lymph in her neck area! They have now started my sister on a diff drug,I will try to find out what it is.Keep posted on how the drug works for her...thinking of you and your family! Sorry,wish I could help with more info!
