Thanks Chelsea. i just took my 23rd dose of Zelboraf, started a week ago last Monday,4 pills in the morning, 4 piles at night. had the weekly consultation with my Onc - no nickname for him yet. I'm responding. I asked him if he can get MEK or anyt of the new "my Z isn't working anymore" and his response was - yup. I've got a nasty cough, still. i had 9 radiation treatments on the biggest mass which was contributing to a partial lobe collapse and blockage of the airway. I have at least a bad 2nd degree front and back and both Oncs agreed time to stop. I can talk The dog for a longer walk and do stuff outside in full UVF camo. I asked him if we could reasoably expect 2 more years (I'm 62 and have a relatively short bucket list) and he said, after all the factrs about individual response that he thought I will. that takes a bit of the sting out of this beast. I hope you have a great, rejuvenating weekend C!
Blessings Chelsea. I don't know how I found you, but glad I did. Healthy wishes for many years to come. :o)
Hi Chelsea - i've been on Zelboraf and radiation for two weeks as of tomorrow., some breathing problems, i think because Im getting radation on the left top lobe to open it up. Asked Dr Pierce kind of a 40's college looking student. we review lot of my pre=existing conditions. The drug is working. the onc nurse on his on-call system said I should reduce the dose by half, don't push right now and talk to Dr P. i've had this cough, an increasingly worse one since the kids came down from seatttle. i didn't think this would a walk in the park but neither do i think it's samo samo. I know Dr P, once of Onc Nurses or Kellie his specialist will come up with something that will help. didn't get out of bed today till 12:34and thank you for the pravers I absolutely they make a differemce so i've asked anybody who asks to add our family and m to youre nighthly prayers.I pray for you morning and nght for courage, endurance to be surrounded by angel who hold you in their arms and was all your earthly problemss.
