Eutroc Pissaro Trial

I have just found out I do have P53 tumour marker so I am eligible for this trial .Further scanning to take place next week with a view to starting treatment on 12th. Tomorrow I will be at my local hospital all day to have ascites drained. I am pleased to be going on the trial but feel apprehensive. My Cancer journey really began around 3 years ago but until now I have not suffered any symptoms apart from the usual ones from carbo/Taxol treatment. The ascites has made me feel quite unwell, unable to sleep and very anxious. Should I be able to find some improvement once the drain has taken place ? I'm sure many others have been in my situation before. Sandra

Hi Sandra

Pleased to hear you are able to get on the trial . I had ascities when first diagnosed and had them drained twice , first when diagnosed (5 litres) and then the week before I started my chemo ( another 5 litres ) as I was so uncomfortable. Could hardly walk , eat and wasn’t able to lie down . Had almost immediate relief after the drain and remember sending my husband out for fish and chips ! Hope the drain makes you feel more comfortable and sending best wishes for the trial .

Let us know how you get on .

Love and best wishes Kim x 💜


Looking forward to a good meal tomorrow evening then x x

Sandra this sounds interesting. I know I recently had foundation medicine genetic testing and I too have a P53 marker so I will make a note of this for future reference. Hope it works well for you xxx


You will so feel better, gets rid of the discomfort, I also had 2 blood transfusions and one tab of Omaprezole a day, which dispersed the acid and let my appetite return
