my husb has had a whisper of a voice for abt 4 wks. at first i thought this was caused by his 2 collapsed vertebreas- but ortho dr said no. what can it be then- has this happened to anyone out there? he has no cold or sickness- he does have large tumor in left lung- mets on spine, rib and adrenal gland... we go to drs on wednesday-also he has been off of tarceva for over 4 weeks no treatment all this time-because tarceva didnt agree with his stomach. so dr. just left us high and dry!As I said before I HATE HIS DR AND HIS FACILILTY BUT HE DOES NOT WANT TO CHANGE!! the ortho dr wont touch his spine because of mets above and below colloapsed vertabreaes. he was given a back brace to wear.
