Small study showed high accuracy but hurdles remain, two experts said

My dearly loved husband has adenocarcinoma Stage IV, has the EGFR mutation and was started on Tarceva. He has been taking a number of Probiotics, having a number of digestive problems that we think date back to his colon cancer surgery 5 years ago.
Are digestive problems a lung cancer symptom?
Do probiotics help or hinder Tarceva?
Thanks and blessings to you.

Well, let me answer me--and us. Got a phone call from his oncologist's medical assistant that probiotics are fine. So any of you who want to take them to help your digestion while taking Tarceva, I hear it's fine from the medical establishment.
Blessings to all,

Thank you for the information. I have been taking Tarceva for several months now and the heartburn and nausea were becoming a real problem. I started drinking probiotic cultures and all symptoms are gone. Now I just need to figure out how to get rid of the blisters on my tounge. :\
