After 3 cycles on a research study which used docetaxel and Carboplatin along with rapamycin taken 2 days before chemo I got mixed results, and have been taken off the study. I continue to feel fine--no pain, plenty of energy, no side effects except numbness in soles of feet and fingertips. PSA came down 1% in last 3 weeks after increasing 1600 points in the previous 6 weeks. Scans showed no progression in bones, shrinkage of lymph tumors, BUT more spots in the liver. Doctors may want a liver biopsy, but haven't decided. Had to vent somewhere.
