Hi Barb, no lung mets here but I did want to welcome you to the biggest supportive family in the world! 

Hope the Navelbine works well for you and puts those cancer cells out of business!

I have lung mets and have learned so much just from reading these posts! Barb, thanks for starting this threat. I didn't know navelbine was developed for lung mets either! Yeah! Something else in the arsenal for the future! I'm NED now and taking gemzar as a maintenance chemo but it is so good to know there are other options. I hadn't heard about alimta either. Welcome, Barb! When I first found bc.org I was in awe of the friendships that were forged. I did a lot of lurking, then a post here and there, and it seemed like in no time I was part of a very large, supportive family. Hugs your way! Glenna

Bhd1, I don't have any advice or experience with lung mets or Navelbine but I want to  welcome you to our little corner of the world.

I hope your treatment is successful and gives you minimum SEs.

Hi Bhd1 -- I have lung mets too, as well as skin and nodal involvement.  Welcome to these boards, but sorry you had to join us.  You'll find this site a great source of support -- don't know what I would do without it!!  Good luck on Navelbine.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it kicks the beast to the curb!

Sorry about your joining us, but glad you found this forum!  I have lung mets, am ER+/PR+, and am on Femara (an aromatase inhibitor) that appears to be helping.  If you are postmenopausal and ER+, an aromatase Inhibitor (AI) might be of help.
