The third line chemo is not working on some resistant cancer smothering my small intestine. Has anyone else had cancer there? There is not much of it but it is enough to tie the small intestine up so it doesn't work as well. The outlook is for it to block completely and they tell me it's very unlikely they could do a meaningful operation which in other words means I will then die. Any ideas or glimmers of hope for me would be appreciated.
They have stopped the Carbo/Caelyx and I have the option of going on Taxol (weekly), Eptopisode or Topetecan. All of these have a 10% chance of working. I am not optimistic myself. Help!
I'm going to see Prof. Gore at the Royal Marsden for a second opinion Friday.
