I've only seen my MO in person once in the last 20 months. She was on sabbatical, then came back & Covid hit. She didn't want me traveling to Vancouver from the island just to see her. I do have a GPO in Nanaimo but only ever did phone calls with him. So I haven't had a physical check for almost 2 years.
Sadiesservant, I don't know much about this treatment, my MO called me to tell me she thought I should think about it. I too am now heavily treated. We are doing breaks in treatment when I am stable to prolong the length of a treatment. When I was on weekly doxil, I took 2 months off, it was wonderful.
I'm a bit nervous about this trial, the last one I was on was Piqray & it was horrible for me. I lasted 10 days. Luckily the trial allowed me to stay on Faslodex as a third arm of the trial. But I've blasted through most of the chemos offered other than weekly doxil which I would have stayed on but MO felt that we were getting pretty iffy on the amount of time I'd been on it, with heart damage being a concern.
take care all, think good thoughts for me for Monday's CT & meeting with trial RN & MO. cheers, dee
