    Side Effects

    Have had regular chemotherapy drugs cisplatin, gemcitabine, now on Tarceva pill, lost all hair, now growing back, but I have black hair so it is growing back black just about everywhere, also dizziness and wild dreams because it is better taken at night, so you do not feel all effects.

    Decision on whether to continue any type of therapy.

    Decision Point

    It was very hard desiding whether I was going to continue with therapy, once they told my husband again that all they could do was prlong what was going to happen to me, I had to ddeside to continue with trial and try the Pills, so far two years and counting.
