Hello,

Just wondering if there are any BRCA positive Pan.Can  patients here who are on Lynparza. We are looking for some further information on it, as we have a family member who has now been on it for about a month. We are moving forward with another procedure (Y-90) as well and just want some feedback....Thanks so much

Hello, my husband was diagnose with pancreatic cancer stage 4 almost five years ago.  he was on chemo and up until a few months ago was put on the chemo pill Lynparza.  His last scan showed that the tumors /lesions were stabled. However, he complained about a pain on the side which he attributed to sciatica. He exercised but the pain would not go away so he had an MRI done. It turns out that the cancer had spread into his spine that was causing the compression on the nerve that was causing the pain shooting from his leg up to his back. It also turns out that the cancer spread to his brain. I now wish that he would have had a full scan to truly determine that the chemo pill was actually working. But here is where we are. He is in the hospital today and receiving radiation. He's going to get 15 rounds of radiation and probably start on chemo again.  I wish everyone going  through cancer the very best.
