A Good Day

Thought I would write an update on where I am with any treatment. My oncologist referred me to another hospital cancer unit where they run trials to see if there was anything suitable for me. I had appointment today and it has been suggested that I may be suitable for txhe trial PF-1367338 and Carobplatin subject to some tests. I have said that I would like to join the trial and have been told that it could start within 2 weeks or so. You can imagine I came out of there with hope. I know they cannot guarantee you anything but I am being positive. Are there any other ladies out there that have joined thi trial, your comments would be great. Luv Jean x

  • Good luck with the trial Jean! I was disappointed when I was taken off the Icon 6 trial because I became allergic to carboplatin. The close monitoring is very reassuring. Keep positive!

  • Sorry got chemo fingers i meant SUCCESS!!!

  • Hello Jean

    I am on a trial, not the same one though. You have every reason to be hopeful and positive. Yes I have to go for scans/check-ups every 3 weeks - so the care they take of you is brilliant. And it is good to know that whatever is being trialled might save lives in the future and you are a part of that.

  • Many thanks for all your good wishes. Just come back from a weekend a way in our motorhome, first time I have felt like going anywhere for sometime. Didnt do much but the break was good and I feel much better. Going for my first lot of tests etc on Tuesday, fingers crossed. Luv Jean xx

  • All the very best for tomorrow and please do blog about how it goes. It is so useful for us all to know what is out there.

    Love Lizzie


  • Good Luck Jean V. Let us know how your trial is going and perhaps we can ask our local hospitals if there's anything going for us.

    Hope you keep posting on the blog. xxx
