Gee this looks kinda familiar, with the exception of dexamethasone. Wonder why my Sloan Kettering onc didn't tell me about this?? It's her pump, after all! (Can you hear the dripping sarcasm? I'm so glad she isn't my onc anymore...) I BEGGED her to discuss trials!

Kris....I wonder about it too.  Peripheral Neuropathy is accepted, but I wonder whether she was cautious about putting you through that again.  When in doubt, ask.  See if you receive a response.
