In Sept. 2011 I was diagnosed with NSCLC. Surgery was not an option since it had spread - Stage 4. The doctor told me I had a year to live. I started on Xalkori in Oct. 2011. The side effects are uncomfortable but manageable. My last PET scan (April 2012) showed no active cancer. The doctor says I am not cured, so I will continue the chemo drug. He has retracted his prognosis, telling me no promises but maybe 5 years. The side effects are diarrhea, acid reflux, and vision problems (only going from dark to light). The drug works.
