AML

my sister in law was diagnosed with AML in December, 6 months after my husband, her brother, was diagnosed with stage 4 NSCLC. She has had two rounds of chemotherapy administered 24/7. The doctor is now telling her that he has tried all the chemo he can on her and her only option is a clinical trial or go home and they will keep her comfortable. She was suppose to get a stem cell transplant but they are now saying she probably won't have the right counts to do it. She has gone to our state hospital to begin a clinical trial today. I haven't researched AML very much but would think there were more than two chemo drugs that would work with it?? Any input or info would be appreciated.

Tell her not to give up. There are many survivors. Get another opinion. God bless all of you.

Dawn,

Where is your sister getting her care? There are so many protocols out there. Has she been considered for a bone marrow transplant or have they been unable to get her into remission? I have been through all of it and would be happy to answer any/all of your questions. Have faith!

We are here in Iowa. She was suppose to get a stem cell transplant but they can't get her healthy enough to have it...her blood counts aren't right. I don't fully understand it all. They have advised if the clinical trial doesn't work she will have to go to hospice - game over.
