Topic: xoleda to control lung mets
Just back from an all day event at Cancer Treatment Center of America, and the news isn't great....but what I expected. My dad has several mets on each lung. The good news is after Cat and PET test no indicaiton of any other mets in his body. The cells apparently were detected, but too small to biopsy when his CC was first diagnosed in June of 07. They have grown now, slowly, but none the less they have grown. The ONC strongly suggests Xoleda. 3 500 mg tablets in am and 3 500 mg tablets in evening. Dr. basically said, this will not "cure" this cancer, but could stableize the tumors. Not sure, but hopful(the the ONC was sounding really positive, which helped my parents a bit- although they are both really scared- it was a long quiet car ride home) Any feedback on Xoleda? Success? side effects? we were made aware of all the possible side effects, and actually met with a naturopath and she percribed a bunch of things to try and combat the possible issues. Thanks for any assistance, I am thinking my parents want to go for it, especially since my dad can do it in the convenience of his own home.
