    I am 81 years old and was diagnosed with NETS 3 years ago. I have been on Lanreotide , the once a month injection and it has kept most of the NETS at bay and has shrunk many of them.Four months ago, I went on AFINITOR with disastorous results!! I ended up in hospital for 6 days with Pneumonitis that left me with some permanent lung damage!!! I am on oxygen at night for possibly the rest of my life! I lost 20 pounds and a lot of my stamina.. For 81 years old I am in good health with no heart issues. I regret I tried Afinitor!!!!! I have never experienced any of the carcinoid syndrome since finding out I had NETS.
