 5  Stage4 Lung cancer metastasis I had only been taking this for around 6 wks. At that time due to bradycardia (low Heart Rate), rash, pain etc I had to stop taking it. A new ct was done and to everyone's surprise one tumor in my lung was completely gone and the other has shrunk to half the size. Almost all lymph nodes have shown signs of shrinking as well ! I've been told there is no cure but this sure does give me hope. I'm now on a lower dose and I'm doing better with my heart rate. F 58 6 weeks

 4  ALK positive lung cancer Fatigue , muscle pain (all over) fluid retention, depression, insomnia due to pain in muscles (I am writing this on behalf of my husband) Medication is working , shrinking all tumors in lungs plus lymph nodes . Five year survival WITHOUT this Med was under 5%, now it's at 62%. It is buying time , but will not cure per md. Sides effects are so powerful I'm not sure my husband can continue taking the rest of his life , but for now it is worth it M 64 7 months
