Hi Gang - Just a reminder dx Dec. 05, Stage IV, mets to liver and lungs. Doctors told me my chemo options were becoming limited and I decided to take a chance on a doctor here in Bs As. I have family here so the decision was not that hard to make. What we are doing here is called receptive therapy (or in Italian Terapia Recetoriali). It is nuclear medicine and widely used in Europe but not in Canada or the States. The beauty of the treatment is no side effects. The other part is that it works according to everyone´s own genetic makeup. Anyways, I am a couple of weeks away from the first set of scans but I will keep you posted as soon as I hear something. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Monica

HI, How interesting!!! I cannot find anything on Receptive Therapy. Can you direct me to any websites? Stepson (33) stage IV. Mets to lungs confirmed Nov. 06. Go back to Duke Tues to start on new treatment. Mets 4 MM now - 2 removed to confirm. (very tiny). 1st Onc. gave us no hope, 3 years, now Duke is planning on taking action - just don't know what that is yet. The genetic matching up of the chemo though is very interesting. Would appreciate any info!!!
