Dear nellienix,


I'm sorry you haven't had any replies yet.  You might find more people will see your question if you post in the Secondary Breast Cancer section of the forum.  I have found one thread on there which might be helpful:

anyone on Navelbine for lung and liver mets

Hi everyone. I have just started Navelbine chemo after being on Capecitabine for 9months. It has worked well for me but now its stopped working and my latest scan shows regrowth in the liver. My lung and bone mets have been stable for 18months. Just wanted feedback on results and side effects of Navelbine.

 I posted on another site and they recommended I try this site. Looking forward to replies.
