As some of you know, the IV chemotherapy did not work for me and caused me a great deal of problems with side effects from which I have yet to fully recover. There is a second chemotherapy which is standard protocol and I have declined it- the cost in terms of quality of life doesn’t equal the possible benefit (at least for me).
I have signed up to participate in a clinical trial for PSMA therapy but there are several hurdles to get in and even if I get into the trial, there is a 1 in 3 chance I will not receive the medicine being studied (ie- get put in the control group).
Concurrently, I will have a lymph node biopsied to study the genetics of my cancer and determine if there might be another alternative.
I have been absent for a while because my brain was fogged but I’m improving slowly but surely.
Thank you all for the kind words and thoughts, I may not have acknowledged them but they are very meaningful to me.
