Is there anyone else on this drug for primary liver cancer?

I have been on it for almost 4 weeks but not been told what happens next.

Do they do CT scans after so long to see if is working?

Hi pumpkinsmum.

I saw that no-one had got back to you on this yet so I've had a quick look through the forum and found that @HelenP ‍ was asking about Lenvatinib back in January so fingers crossed they will pop by to share their experience and advice with you now I've mentioned them in this post.

Your medical team will be the best people to ask about what happens next but if you'd like a general chat with someone about this then do give our cancer nurses a call. They're available on 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m.

Kind regards,

Hi, my husband took it for a while but not for liver cancer. He eventually had to stop taking as he had some side effects which was making his quality of life very uncomfortable. I advise you speak with your consultant as they will scan you but not sure on when if you are tolerating the drug ok. Hope your treatment goes well.
