Update;

I had 5 chemo treatments of cisplatin and gemzar.  It was no fun.  I have one more.  I also do a short day each month in between.  Anyway, I have no energy but am coming around a bit.  My back is healing from the spine surgery.  The chemo is not working.

They are going to do foundation 1 genomic testing?  Anyone have any info on this?  Thanks,  Paul

hello,

I am trying to make sure I get the care possible and don"t know for example if my oncologist knows about this.  I am stage four and struggling with gemzar and cisplatin among many other issues such as they had to fuse my spine cuz the tumor was taking over.  I need help.

I am in round five of chemo treatments.  Cant hardly eat.  Doc says cancer is spreading and chemo not really working, but why am I continuing?

he says I do foundation 1 treatment next?  I trust my doctor, but just want to make sure i am doing everthing i can.

I am done with radiation and have had three of six rounds of chemo.  The first 2 rounds produced major nausea and fatigue.  I had to have major spine surgery where there was a tumor separating it.  I am 43 yr old guy.

I am able to eat finally and focus on treatment management.  I could not really do this until now.  I get an updated Scan this week, but know that the cancer has spread to many areas already. 

Has anyone looked into CBD oil and extracts?  Please message me if so.

I am interested in other alternatives and additions to my treatment style and am now learning quite a bit.  I have been able to reduce my pain meds and manipulate my diet which has all worked together. 

Thank you

I came up with jaundice, went to hospital.  Long story short, i had to have spine surgery to fuse it since the cancer was taking over.  They said I was lucky not to have cracked it and become paralyzed.  Anyway, 2 months later I have had two stents in bile duct (no problem.)  Radiation 10 days, and now into chemo, just had 2nd treatment.  I have two rounds, one is 8 hours, the other is short half hour every couple weeks.  Its all a shock, I lost about 30 pounds and have been on painkillers for all the back and skeletel pain from the cancer so forgive my grammer and analytical skills please. 

The cancer is in my liver, pancreas, spine, ribs, and more, but, for now I am just moving around a bit and taking meds.  I sleep quite a bit, but not all day.  I have two boys, 15,and 10. Wife too, she has been great and i have great family support thank god.  However, money is tight to having none.  SS insurance is approved but wont kick till may, and short term is coming thru shortly, but we need help financially.  We have to pay the health insurance and keep these boys fed.  Family is helping tremendously, but that cant last forever.
