Went to the doctor this morning for the results of the CT scan & the news was not so good. Despite all the chemo, the cancer has been growing so I'm officially out of the Mayo study. I will be starting a new treatment with Topotecan which is a second-line chemo agent which has been shown to prolong survival and improve symptoms. I will be getting this drug with another randomized drug AVE0005. I get a brain scan on Monday to make sure no cancer has spread there sine my last scan. If I'm good to go, we start the Topotecan immediately.
How do I feel about this? Mayo was a 50/50 chance of getting a placebo. God didn't like the odds either!
Still looking for the miracle. Thanks for your continued prayer.
