Topic: First scan since trial started

Hi, everyone.
I have my first scan since I started the trial on Friday. I get results on Monday. It's a weekend of waiting, but that's much better than a week!
I'm trying not to think about it. I have put my faith, and my life, in Gods hands. And I know negative thoughts are detrimental. So I'm thanking Him for steering me to the trial, and telling him I am sure He has it under control. I'm thanking Him for my good results for next week!
I'm feeling like a teenager with acne, but if that's my side effects, I'll take it!
And I will post as soon as I am able so you can all hear how this new drug is working, on me, at least!! I can't wait! I'm very excited!
For those of you who don't know or can't remember, I am in a trial for those for whom traditional therapies have not worked. It's here in the north east, at Fox Chase, U of P and one other cancer center. And I believe there are still openings. The drug is LY2801653.

Good luck for the scan and results Kris!! My fingers will be crossed and I look forward to reading about in the good news section! Maybe some poker and karaoke would help with the distractions over the weekend!

Good luck!!
