Thanks KT. It doesnt look like there is anything happening.
From what Ive read it looks like a potentially treatment so I guess I need to find someone eilling to prescrive and iversee it. Fiest stop will be the oncoligist so we shall see.
We are past the chemo stage and its just steroids snd palluative oversight so there is nothing to loose.
For anyone interested here are some relevant articals:

Here in the UK it's unlikely you will find an oncologist who will prescribe or be willing to do this on the NHS.
If you go private you may come across a hopeful doctor willing to help. We are at same stage with my son and he's just on palliative care now so would be interested to see how you get on.
