Had a meeting with the Oncologist yesterday and informed him I wouldn't be continuing with chemo. I was supposed to have the second infusion today. He tried to convince me to continue. Initially I have agreed to meet him again in 2 weeks. Interestingly, it's been 3 weeks yet I had diarrhea again this morning. The Dr explained I had a large dose, as I was 120 kg (lost 5 kg in last 3 weeks) and 6ft. He showed me some stats on a study of docetaxel plus predisnone study. On average 18 months extra. As we know, there are lies damned lies and statistics. I don't understand if that means an average of 18 months life after 6 cycles. Or 18 months extra than if you don't have chemo? Can someone help here?
Interestingly PSA was .91. Lowest since diagnosis. Blood markers all good.
