Topic: Gemcis Results/Proton Beam trial at MD Anderson
I met with my doctor today to discuss the results of my bone scan and ct scan. There are no new growths, the existing tumours have remained the same except for the one biggie - it shrank from 8cm to 7cm! I know I should be happy with these results, as it was within a span of 4 treatments on Gemcis!!
After talking to my oncologist, we have decided to try to get into the Proton Beam Therapy trial at MD Anderson in Houston. Perhaps with a combination of it and chemo it'll make a bigger difference.
Has anyone here participated in this trial yet? I was just wondering what to expect as far as time spend at MD Anderson each day for the therapy, side effects you experienced, or any tips to prepare.
