I got my packet from the new onc with info on a clinical trial he thinks may be beneficial to me. The trial is for a drug called XL184. I have a lot of information to process before I make any decision. I was very impressed with this new guy. When I asked him his opinion on alternative medicine he said "Patty- I couldn't sit here and talk to you about experimental treatments without having an open mind about other treatment options", and he gave me a card for a Naturopathic Oncologist that he consults with. He is all for things that make his patients feel better, and all the patients he's referred to him have reported just that.
My pain meds have been upped to a Fentanyl patch. I'd been taking dilaudid all week, with little relief. Neither seem to do much for my pain, but instead make me tired and loopy. Will have to discuss this with oncologist. My shoulder is still whacked out. I'm waiting for the MRI authorization to go through, and will start physical therapy next week.
I think my get up and go musta got up and went. I'm so tired.
