Does anyone have experience of the above trial? Two weeks ago I went for my end of chemo CT scan and follow up. I wasn't expecting the news I received, despite optimal debulking a tumour has regrown in my small bowel and the lesions in my liver which I was told were benign are solid tumours and it is encapsulated by cancer, there is fluid in the lung. I only had 5 of 6 carbo /taxol as it caused low blood levels, but apparently was totally ineffective . I was offered palliative care and a possibility of a clinical trial. It was quite a blow, and not delivered with a great deal of sensitivity. The oncologist said she wouldn't recommend any further treatment . My dilemma is that the above trial is randomised I have a 1 in 3 chance of being put back on chemo. Do I really want all the side effects again? plus all the hassle of a long journey on top of feeling c**p. Thank God for a lovely Macmillan palliative care consultant and nurse.It was the first time I felt listened to and able to have a proper discussion. She agreed to trying to keep as healthy as possible, diet exercise and mental care, and wasn't averse to alternative treatments but warned me to be careful about the costs. Sorry to be so negative but the last couple of weeks have been tough, it has also been difficult knowing how to tell elderly frail parents. I will have to get back to my mantra of live well/ die well. I will handle it but it is b****y hard. I have been grateful for oramorph and Wimbledon!! I will need to find another distraction tomorrow. Jane.
