Today’s results

Today’s results showed 2 new lesions in my liver and the tumor where i had surgery in my back has gotten larger and is threatening my spinal cord again.  Yet, they cant do radiation again so soon.  They can put me on the clinical trial, but there is no guarantee that i wont be put on the placebo.  My oncologist has suggested perhaps putting me back on irinotechan.  This will require permission from a pulmonologist as i had an allergic reaction that affected my lungs and put me on oxygen last time.  But it would be the best option….so keeping my fingers crossed.

    Well as your oncologist is apparently implying, you are capable of spontaneously NOT reacting to the meds. So much is going on with your body, who knows? If he thinks it is the best option and you feel up for it (although not really sure what that means :)) go for it. Otherwise (if doc says no) why not do the trial? Maybe you’ll be in the lucky 50%.
