just. a quick updatemon whats been happening
i saw onc yesterday and i can restart oxy which i had at the beginning of this journey. i did have good results with it. however peripheral neuropathy meant i only managed 8 courses so please fingers crossed we have some sucess. my onc jad got me costings and a name for me to discuss avastin with. however she was encouraging abput going down that route as she said it can be effective as a first line with oxy but as third line she has seen very little good results so at the moment we are keeping it in reserve. we also saw clinical trials team, as i suspected no bowel cancer trials at moment. but i am a good candidate as no previous medical history other than the cancer.my onc is sending bisopy to check for immunology status as there may be immu ology treatment available. we discussed proton beam which is a no no. cannabis oil was discussed and although she didnt say not to take it she was sceptical and advised that as unregulated i dont kbow if safe etc, in all i have come away feeling that i have some options left to me and that they are still he,ping me to continue to fight this as long as they dont give up on me neither will i.
oh she also gave me steriods for a couple of weeks to boost me and said she was happy for me to go to florida in a few weeks.
so next appt is with palliative dr to sort out more effective pain control on monday and hopefully i will be feeli g much better and able to continue.
