Thank you so much for your response. I am currently in the midst of my hubby's retirement, a move from co to tx, and lots of family drama to deal with. I have a new oncologist that is fabulous and I will see if I can be tested for this. I am finishing up radiation today for the cancer in my hip bone. Thanks again! Donna

Also known as erlotinib... A pill form of chemo.... I'm asking my doc about it since the Gemzar I am on is doing absolutely nothing to decrease my ca19-9 levels..... Please let me know! Thanks, Donna

yes, I am  on Erlotinib.   I was stage 4, terminal in 2012 and have been on it since March 2012 and still responding to it.

I do have the dry coarse totally unrully hair, very, very long eyelashes, acne that comes and goes, etc.

I take 150 daily.   I had head and neck cancer 2009 and it moved to both lungs in 2012.

My first oncologist said he could not save my life, so I moved MDA and they put me on the drug, and so far, no new growth and re-growth of old tumors.
