bumping this thread after having read through all nine pages.

Two nodules in my lung grew to 2.5 cm on my latest scan and I have lymph node involvement almost everywhere.

Trying stivarga next. I'm guessing they don't make any changes to a drug like stivarga once it's out so I'm assuming I can expect the same side effects.

Anyone currently on this that would like to share their experience???

Hi everybody,
My boyfriend has just started on stivarga after 3 years of battling colon cancer with metastasis in his liver and his lungs. They got rid of his colon and liver tumors and some of his lungs tumors through ops but it is still there. He's been in A LOT of pain for months due to some liquid in his lungs so he has been through too much already. Reading about stivarga's side effects is scaring me big time. Hope it helps reduce his tumors and especially his pain. He's already lost almost 2 stone so I don't know how bad it's going to be when he loses the little appetite he still has.
Please send your love and good wishes. We need it. And hope everyone who is going through a similar situation gets well soon x
