OK I am going to keep it short.
First concerning the side effects. I had just one. So the mild nausea increased to very heavy nausea and a burning stomac. After a week of throwing up I finally got. decent medication for it. Primperan, litican and motillium were not enough… But zofran got me through the last 2 weeks. So that became severe as I was throwing up everything I ate and drank. I did notice an apple was a good combination with the pills. No other major complaints.
Second : it didn’t work… Not even a bit. Tumor in my abdomen doubled to 20cm! My abdomen is full with tumor. Several new ones appeared. The one in my lung invaded my heart and spleen. Also my left lung completely collapsed… So yeah one big shock yesterday

Hi Kaiowas - I am so sorry to hear this news. All the best in evaluating the next treatment. My daughter has had success with high dose ifosfamide and trabectedin for some time. Also, I hear the NY-ESO immunotherapy is working good. Please use this site to look at other options. Take care, Trish

Dear Kaiowas, this is so scary :-( I hope you are not in pain. You were running out of options before this trial, does that mean they are going to give up on you now? I wish you a miracle...

My son will be starting on this trial as soon as 6 weeks…could be longer. In the mean time he’s taking 600 mg of votrient daily. So far he’s got a bit of a cough but doing ok. I’m praying for some good news, as everything has been negative for a long time. They told us to make this the best year of his life …


#19

Wise advice. You never know what the future will bring so you may as well try to make the best of the present… I do hope the trial works for him! Good luck!
