Reply to "New Developments in Treatment: Erbitux® (cetuximab)"

Hi eyecandy, please can you tell me which chemo your dad is having with erbitux and more details of side effects and regime. I am about to start erbitux with taxol as my throat cancer has now spread to my lungs. Have had 6months of cisplatin but the tumours have grown 100% in the last 3months!! This treatment seems to be a last resort. My onco says it will only give me an extra 2 months and I am wondering if the side effects are worth putting up with or whether to just let the disease take its course and have palliative r/t when the pain becomes severe. Any advise from anyone would be appreciated, feeling a bit low at this stage!!! Frowner
