Hello all, I saw my Dr yesterday and he is very pleased with my progress and the way my body is handling the treatment I'm on. I'm on Osimertinib also known as Tagrisso. Side affects I've had are rash on face flakey skin and spots. Which are now clearing up as my body gets uses to the tablet. I'm also back playing football and cycling which had done a lot for my well-being. I'm going to live my life to the full while I can. Positive thinking all the time.
Hi muffin break that is really good news. I think the skin rash is quite a common side effect of Tagrisso. Great to hear you are back to playing football and cycling. Enjoy every day x
Hi Muffin Break, so pleased you are doing well on the tablet ,as you know I am also on osimertinib with few side effects I see my oncologist on the 20th of this month, great that you are back playing football. with me because I have brain mets my balance is not to good, keep positive . Ellen
Thank you how long have you been on Osimertinib?
Hello Muffin break, I picked up today my 33rd prescription of Osimertinib. First one was back in March 2019.
Hi I started 3rd august
Thats gives me some confidence in tablet John Boys nearly 3yrs. I've only just started my 2nd lot of Osimertinib just hope I get 3yrs or even more fingers crossed. Do you get any more side affects popping their heads up. Do you get tired more than normal.. Hope you keep well
Do get tired and out of breath. However I do have AF (irregular heart rhythm) as well as cancer. Not had any real side effects apart from an occasional sore mouth
