Hello, My husband is stage 4 nsclc and has been on tarceva for 3 months -- he is doing ok. It does nauseate him. But no rash as others have c/o of. Good luck and god bless, Nancy C.
Hello, Yes it is both ankles and feet. I think it might be the chemo - who knows? He goes to the dr. tomorrow a.m. Thanks, Nancy
Hello - my husband is on avastin intravenously one time every 2 weeks and it is $3000/per dose. So it quite expensive here too. Good luck, Nancy
Can anyone tell me if they have experienced any feet or ankle swelling due to their chemo or along with the diagnosis of lung cancer? My husband has this and is very uncomfortable - I called his oncologist who will see him next week?? Who knows what will happen by next week. Thanks, Nanlyn C.
Deb - thanks for your info. That is what I am so afraid of. As you know, it isn't fair. God bless, Nancy
I am concerned about the % of lung cancer patients that have brain involvement. It seems this is frequent. Am I wrong? Thanks, Nanlynn
I am concerned - as I read these different messages it seems with lung cancer there is a large amount of brain involvement either initially or eventually. Am I wrong about this? My husband was dx 18 months ago with lung cancer and I am concerned about it spreading. Thanks, Nancy C.

Margaret, When my husband was first dx with cancer the dr. told him pray it's lymphoma or hodgkins -- they are most curable. Unfortunateley it wasn't. it was stage 4 lung cancer that spread to his neck-the neck tumor was the first sign of cancer he had. So keep your head up he has a long road ahead with the chemo but hopefully things will be promising. God bless you and I will keep your family in my prayers. nancy c
What type of cancer was he diagnosed with: stage 2 cancer can be a little more promising than stage 3-4. Hopefully he found it early -- be positive and get him a lot of support; peace, Nancy C.
Janmarie -- Thanks for your response. You're right -everything has to be reseached -- and it is so hard to keep up with everything and decide what is right and what's not. Good luck and God bless, nancy c.
