Well I’ve decided on a treatment and yes it is yet another trial! I talked to my doctor there at MD Anderson in Houston and several trial nurses that pitched their trials to me. The winner is the sexy one called “Perifosine and Docetaxel in Patients With Relapsed Epithelial Ovarian Cancer”. This one was the most attractive because the nurse said it seems to be especially effective for clear cell OVCA. That’s what I have and most all medical journals have poor prognosis with standard treatment. DUH! That’s what happened to me now with 2 different treatments. So I’ve got a few weeks off of all chemo Yea! Then will schlep down to Houston to (get this) do blood work, x-ray, ekg, Pet Scan, MRI, CT Scan and then a needle biopsy of a tumor. THEN I start the trial. Whew…doesn’t that sound like a fun few days!
Hopefully I’ll be able to fit in a taichi or yoga session in between scans/tests. They offer all kinds of things there.
Sorry this is so medical and boring….
Okay non medical stuff…I’m here at home ALL ALONE! Yes! Though I love, love, love my girl and hubby, it is so nice to be a single girl for a few days. They are both in Colorado though on different trips. I’m here with my pup and cat! So watched a chick flick tonight and will just veg and enjoy the quiet and coming downstairs to a clean kitchen for a change! It’s the little things here isn’t it?
Hope everyone is enjoying the summer though it’s come on with a vengeance here….been over a 100 degrees for the last 2 weeks.
