      If you have not spoken to and/or set up an appointment to see you oncologist ASAP, do so tomorrow. She/he will talk to you and explain what to expect and what options are available for treatment and palliative care.

      If I understood your wall he is positive for an EGFR mutation? Exon 19,20 or 21.

      This means he has a good chance to respond to Tarceva or other EGFR drugs in the pipeline. There are people with 100% responce for more than 7 years on Tarceva with an excellant quality of life. Still working etc.

      You need to be at a Lung Cancer facility with experts in LC but it sound slike you are so meet with them and see what the treatment plan looks like. Stay calm and have hope. There is good reason to be hopeful.

      All the best,
