      I am on day 6 of tarceva.  As far as the antiacids i did a lot of research.  The omeprezole is out because I need this shot at life.

        I have had bone pain and they found tumors on my spine.  I have had 9 different tumors radiated 7 of them on my back and my left scapla where I felt pain also before it was scanned.  A scan is needed as radiation works wells for some at stopping the growth of the cancer on the spine as the 9 places have not grown since they were radiated.  Let the doctor know and a scan can be gotten by going to recor...

          You do not name the chemo drugs you are taking.  Do you take pain meds as they are used sometimes for the pain you have.  I have pain in different parts of my body not necesarily where my cancer is. Without chemo you will surely die unless a miracle happens. Best of wishes for you.

            kimmieanne, the doctor gave you 2 or 3 years with stage iv?  What other places did you have cancer than your lung? I found out that I take a acid reflux medication omeprazole which counteracts tarceva as tarceva needs the acid in the stomach to work.  I was told to try taking it 12 hrs before I take the pill.  I have just started and have taken 1 pill so far.

              I had a bad cough last year starting in January and it was not until July we found out I had cancer (squamous nsclc stage IV).  I have a bad cough now but I have periods I do not cough and I am not sure why.  I use cough syrup as it helps some and Halls Breezes cough drops which I buy lots of them when they go on sale for a $1 a pack.
