A mass was picked up on a reg chest xray. Next scan on Sep 24th. Getting scanciety.
I am 66 yr old,just retired nurse from Newfoundland Canada. A mass was picked up on a reg chest xray, showed I had a 6×7 cm mass in LLL. Was operable,but after a month in hospital with pneumonia, it had mets to my right lung so surgery off the table. Was EGFR positive so started on Afatinib 40mg. Severe side effects, so cut back to 30 mg. Mu first scan showed no activity in my right lung, and main mass had shrunk approx 2 cm. The side effects are now bearable, some rash, sore mouth, bouts of diarrhea, fatigue. My next scan is Sept 24th. Getting scanciety already.
