Today’s Oncologist Visit

Thursday, May 20, 2010

During last month’s visit my Onc said options were limited for treating the new growth on my liver. My choices were the study drug TK1258 or Vinorelbine (Naveltine). Because I don’t qualify for the study drug ... Vinorelbine is it.

Back then I didn’t have the courage to ask the Onc what he meant by… limited options.

Today I asked the question. How many options do I have left? He said if Vinorelbine fails, I will be put on compassionate care. 

I asked if I could try DCA and he said he would look into it.
