I have an ever increasing number of BCC's, treated by surgery and PDT. The last one under the eyelid. I have an increasing fear that one will go un noticed and cause death or mutilation.
I am being offered a course of Erivedge which appears to have really bad side effects,which, with Gorlin's Syndrome means a lifetime of treatment. I also have Parkinson's, which means a pretty low llifestyle without the addition of Erivedge
Any advice?

Hello, Ferneyberger! How are you doing? I am very sorry about the problem that you're having.

The side effects for Erivedge aren't really any different than those for other similar treatment drugs and the most common ones experienced were actually fairly milked and included nausea, diarrhea, muscle spasms, fatigue and hair loss.

Which ones did you read about that caused you such concern? Maybe it will help you if someone address those.
