Thank you all!!!!
Here's hoping this study works-its a major time commitment. I still work FT hood thing I have a supportive boss!
Went to MSKCC without eating or drinking anything since the night before
8:30. Took weight, finger stick, EKG, temp and blood pressure
9:00 Met with my MO then study nurse. Took my GDC0077 and Letrozole at 9:48. Nurse went over all the protocol, gave me a diary to keep, and gave me a cold pack for the GDC0077. It must be refrigerated. Am not allowed to eat until 3 hrs after taking the meds.
1018. Must have many vials of blood taken about 1/2 hr after taking the pills. Of course my veins had an issue so I'm a little black and blue now. Also took temp and blood pressure.
12:48 temp blood pressure and lots more blood drawn
I can eat now. I was soooo hungry and thirsty. Lucky for me I live 1 1/2 blocks from Mskcc so I went home. I actually fell asleep! Guess I didn't sleep that well last night due to being anxious about today.
3:48 temp blood pressure and more blood taken. Glad the needle is finally out of my arm!
5:48 ekg. And all leads removed
Long day but unlike most I can go home in between so it's easier for me
Tomorrow I report at anywhere from 9:18-10:18. on an empty stomach again There is a 1/2 hr window before or after the initial time pills are taken for every part of the day
The worst part of the day for me was the blood draws. Even though they left everything in all day they did have trouble getting the blood to flow so they had to manipulate the needle. Ouch!!!
Will report on tomorrow!
