Is there anyone out there that is on or has been on Everolimus? It is a chemo pill taken once a day?
My dad has Mesothelioma. This is the next course of treatment that his oncologist is advising him to proceed with.
He had chemo (2 rounds) and stopped because it was not working - tumor progressed. Then went in for surgery and it was inoperable. Then went for radiation and tests showed it slowed the growth down but it was still growing at a slower pace. Now they want to try this form of chemo. They do not know of any one drug that treats this rare cancer so they are going to try this now. It is a clinical trial.
Any information would be helpful.
