Patiently waiting

I'm new and writing about my husband who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma.

He has had six cycles of Permatrexed and Cisplatin (not successful ) followed by three cycles of vinobriline again unsuccessful so he has requested to enter a trial . Our oncologist forwarded a referral six weeks ago and we've heard nothing . Has anyone out there requested a trial entry if so how long before you got any kind of acknowledgement . Many thanks and best wishes to all

You must be so worried and I know nothing to help you. You can try the search box (top, right) and try a search for the drugs or the condition.

I can only sympathise too and say I've read and heard of success stories with trials. There was a chap on radio 2's Sunday Love Songs this morning telling of his success with a trial after being given months to live. Moved me to tears. X
