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.
