After a very successful time since last August on Pembrolizumab Trial , with reduction of disease , some shrunk some stable , some of the buggers have nevertheless stuck their heads above the parapet and I am now , off the trial .
Toxicity tolerance went in April with vile tummy problems and then a rash which had me hospitalised , so I sort of knew ....
After five lots of chemo , I am being offered either weekly Cisplatin ( been there , done that twice already ) or Taxol ( been there , done that twice already )....I am being offered The Octopus trial with the Taxol . Of course , I have to undergo tests first to make sure that everything is strong enough to be accepted , but I am daunted by the possible side effects of both drugs , simultaneously ....
I started with Carbo taxol , then Carbo Gem , Then etoposide regime , then taxol , then cisplatin , with caelyx / carbo tossed in for good measure somewhere in that lot , which the body rejected .
My husband is recovering from a stroke and a resurgence of vasculitis , and I feel a bit overwhelmed to be facing all this again . Anyone on the Octopus , to help ma make up my mind ? Or any other ideas ?
I have three areas , all under 5 cm , which seem to be the bother !!!
Hoping everyone out there is doing as well as possible . Weather must get better soon or there will be mildew on me , as well as the plants !
