I have been on a clinical trial which seemed to be working at first but then after a second scan showed a new cancer area. It has not spread anywhere else. I have now been taken off the trials as it is not working . My oncologist feels that anti cancer treatments such as chemo might be too toxic for me. Although I am 83 I feel quite fit and able. I have atrial fibrillation and an underactive thyroid. I lead a healthy life and go dancing several times a week although I have not been able to do this for a while as the drugs made my feet and legs so swollen I could hardly walk. That is now getting better. I am back at Christie's next week to see if there are any alternatives. Anyone any ideas on what might be available. Thank you and good luck to all of you
Hi Mgdockers, I am sorry to hear that the treatment you were on has now stopped. It is such a shame when the trial drugs stop working. I hope that there is another trial for you when you go to Christie’s next week.
On a more positive note, I hope the swelling on your feet continues to get better, so you can get back to your dancing again.
Please let us know how you get on next week x
