I was in the MATCH trial for exactly 28 days. Although my nausea and weak appetite started the week before Christmas, it spiraled down the past 2 weeks. Then I had nausea and half of the anti nausea meds interfered w trial med. finally, the past 2 weeks escalated to vomiting 1-4 times per day. My last day was vomiting every 60-90 minutes. Thankfully, I had an appointment w oncologist. I hadn’t eaten 4 days on top of it all so I was extremely weak that they admitted me to the hospital. Been here since Tuesday.
They did scans and looks like the trial failed me. I have growth in liver, spot on pancreas.
Bad news: growth and I’m out of the trial.
Good news: I had pizza today! I can take all nausea meds now. Cyprexa (sp) seems to work great. I take it at night and it lasts 24 hours. And then I also got Ativan for during day but haven’t needed it. I’ll start chemo Tuesday with the gemcarbo combination.
Still positive...still believe in miracles.
Keeping the faith. ❤️
