Hi everyone I am new to this site. I have been battling cancer for 7 years. Metastatic colon cancer that has spread to my liver. I started the Tetrathiomolybdate (TM) treatment 2 weeks ago. The experimental treatment is supposed to lower copper levels in the body to slow the growth of cancer. I am also taking Xeloda with this drug. Side effects mostly very tired. I get tapped about every 2 weeks for ascites fluid that builds up on my stomach. First tap, drained 10.5 liters which is equivalent to just about 30 pounds, second tap drained a little less about 7 liters, I am hoping this is a good sign. Went for blood work yesterday should know if anything is improving soon, I will let you know. Has anyone else had experience with this drug?
