Positive word about Navelbine

An online friend told me that she was on Navelbine together with Avastin for about a year and a half with great results and almost no side effects. The Navelbine and Avastin stopped the cancer in its tracks and got her to stable disease. She found it to be very tolerable, the easiest regimen of any she'd been on.

Dr G has never mentioned my taking Avastin. You may have heard that recently the FDA removed Avastin as an approved drug for metastatic breast cancer.

I certainly hope to experience some of these same results. Please join me in my chemo mantra: very effective, well-tolerated, with manageable side effects.


  1. A fellow traveler with lung cancer is also on Navelbine alone, some 4 years into therapy and many different chemos. He says he feels the best he has - and had tumor shrinkage, much to the doctor's surprise. So may you be.

  2. Hi Author
    You have really great work for reader. Please keep posting, I would like to hear more from you.

  3. Wow I am glad I found you! I will read more of your blog, I am newly diagnosed right after my 26th birthday and went from stage 2 to stage 4 in less than 3 months. I haven't done any treatment yet.
