I went to my appointment on Wednesday last week. The doc was lovely, very informative about all the drugs and the various different studies showing how the drugs work.
He was also very real with the possible outcomes of taking the drugs.. They are not a miracle cure more something to take alongside chemo to make it more effective and when not on chemo to take the drugs giving your body the ability to fight the cancer cells.
The whole aim of the drugs is to create an environment in your body which is hostile for cancer to thrive in... cutting of energy supplies to the cancer cells.
It made inordinate sense to both my brother and I and has allowed me to come to terms with the fact that maybe there is no cure for me ( I say this for me only!) But that there are ways of managing my condition. After having been on treatment for what seems like 2 years continuously if these drugs can give me a little break then so be it.
Love and best wishes to you all x
