One Hell Of A Week For Me.

Recommended Posts

This Forum has been very important to me Chet. Even my icologist and urologist know about it and tell me how lucky I am to have a support group like the Dogz.

I couldn't agree more!

Feeling a bit more optimistic today!

Helen and I went down to see the Inconologists yesterday. They had just found out that fluid buildup is one of the side effects of the drug trial! I had a bone scan done(It takes 5 hours) and have to go back down next week. If the bone scan looks ok they will restart me on the "wonder" drug trial and closely monitor me for more fluid build up. Now that I am on direutics, I feel better every day.

:iagree:

I hear you with regard to side-effects! Since I had the brain implants I've managed to give up a couple of drugs that have caused me to get very depressed. I feel a few years younger and lighter.

It's good to hear that they are looking to start you back on the "wonder drug" - now that you've got the water problem under control. Hang in there Jim.

Best wishes

Ross

Excellent news Jim! Good to know they found out the side-effect of the trial drug. Pulmonary edema can be a bitch. Good to hear that you are getting better. Btw Jim, you know that some treat pulmonary edema with Viagra :) (usually for high altitude exposure though)

OMFG!!! I haven't really noticed this thread before due to my own insignificant issues, I am really sorry to hear the bad news but I am glad to hear there might be light at the end of the tunnel what with the super drug and all. You and Helen are in our thoughts sir.

Just got back from the London Cancer Centre. Afraid the news was not good. I am back on the dug trial but the iconologist doesn't think the drug is effective any more. PSA is climbing fast and the last bone scan was not good. They showed me a copy of it and I looked like a fookin Christmas tree! The cancer has now spread all the way up the spine and other parts of the body. As they believe the study drug is no longer effective, I will likely be on chimo before the new year. As it is, I will be getting a bone drug, intravenously, every three weeks, at Owen Sound, start right away. If and when I start chimo it will also be done every 3 weeks at Owen Sound. I now have a CAT scan scheduled for Nov 22 and that may show more info.

Helen and I are taking this information in our stride and remain optimistic for the future, whatever transpires.

Sorry to hear more bad news BG. I will keep you in my prayers.

Have you talked to Funflak about Proton Beam Therapy? He was telling me about that a few weeks ago and it was very impressive. Not sure if it would apply for you, but worth a look.

Funflack and I have discussed this several times, What he has done is good for his prostate cancer, I am way beyond that. My cancer is advanced and aggressive and now longer confined to the prostate.
