Tripsie  oh gosh.... that sounds really awful. I don't have any personal experience to offer you but I suggest you talk to your doctor. Surely there is something else they can offer you. Quality of life is so darn important in the overall scheme of things! I hope you find some relief soon.

Love and Hugs,

I think that doctors sometimes forget that treatment of cancer is a two-parter ... quality AND quantity.

I am sorry, tripsie, and it is ok to feel sorry for yourself.  I think you should call the doctor's office and explain what is going on and you are not happy with it.  Find out why they switched you.  Hugs dear one.
