I liked him. He was so prepared. He had inches of charts and actually read thru it! That alone was impressive. He also was extremely respectful of my onco of 12 years, also impressive.
His appriach is different. First off, I am not a candidate for trials.
1. There are so few adv cancer bc trials that I even fit into, none here.
2. Very little funding in urrent economy.
3. The immune ones that I wanted, are mainly being tried on Melenoma, and then still only a handful get in, still looking at years b4 anything will be ready for human trials on bc. He said even melanoma is risky, not without s/e and issues still to be worked out. Will take years yet.
Good News is he feels that I have not.exhausted all the hormonal therapy. He is not big on chemo for bone mets, even thou I have too many tumors. Says not so effective. His plan is to start tomorrow with scans ( rule out possible new clot, ot tumor in right abdomen whis is causing increased pain and tightness in rt leg and ribs.
Then start me on Feara. I, with my son agreed. Bottom line is it cant hurt. May do nothing, but at least trying.
I will know better prognosis after scans.
