I had posted before about my wife who was taking Letrozole for 5th line chemo and it didnt work and had now been put 'under hospice/palliative care' only. WELL
We are going to try and give Carbo (plus another?) another go, just got to convince the Onc who we see on Friday to ok this. If they dont then we will ask for a referral to another Onc.
We know this is a last throw of the dice, but whilst we can throw so to speak - then lets do it.
Our current Onc doesnt think (didnt think) that Carbo would be any good because the new growth has grown from the residual that it didnt get rid of 11 months ago.
Whilst i can see that logic, at the same time many people have the same chemo again at a later date and it still works.....albeit maybe not so good. Besides we had Carbo (with Taxol) finished in May 2011 and then Carbo (with gem) started Dec 2011 (7 months after last carbo) and finished in June 2012.......and that time it 'worked' better than the 1st time, perhaps cos it was mixed with gem, perhaps not.
Our daughters are fully behind this and my wife, though not feeling great, is gearing herself up for one more fight, and for this i salute her.
I will let you know what Onc says etc etc
