Hi to all my fellow semi colons,
I just had my visit with my onc about my latest ct, not real good but not real bad either. There are 2 spots on my lung and 2 spots on my pelvis that have been there for a couple of months which I knew about but they have not grown any. So I asked him what are we going to do about these I don't want to wait for them to grow, and he has recommended for me to go into a clinical research group. With this group I will get oxaliplatin/5-fluorouracil/leucovorin and the new drug or a placebo. My question is regarding the oxaliplatin which I never had before and I don't know much about it or what it does, can anybody give me any info on this type of chemo. The sponsor will pay for my co pays and the test drug as my insurance won't pay for anything that is not FDA approved. Also this program is in what they call phase 3 so it must be doing some good.
So semi colons I need some in put so I can make up my mine wheather I want to do this.
