Diagnosed Stage 2 NSCL Sept 2017, surgery for removal of upper left lobe Adninocarcinoma. 4 rounds Cis/Alimpta. Genetic mutation of EGFR for there tumor. Entered into NCI study March and on Tarceva 150 daily. Typical side effect HOWEVER loosing my hair rapidly! I never lost it during chemo. Will it stop and grow back. It is Aug sever shedding started in June. Nioxin topical not helping

I have been in Tarceva for 2.5 months 150mg, my hait too has started shedding severely, feel quite devastated, my hair is rejecting all shampoos, turns to steel wool when I use anything on it. Apart from Stage4NSCL, I feel pretty helpless all round. Sores and welts on arms and legs.
