marym Posted February 10, 2006 Share Posted February 10, 2006 Hi, Can anyone tell me about stopping treatment. I am quite well but after 7 cycles, I'm having difficulty with my blood counts and may have reached maximum efficiency for this treatment. The trial coordinator said I may have this treatment discontinued. The doctor might offer another treatment or may take a wait and see attitude - until they see progression. Also said that although my tumor was large, the center was probably dead and only the outside was active. Even then, much of it might be scar tissue. My question is if they stop chemo, isn't there a risk of more mets? I have no symptoms of lung disease - but I have had pain from mets, before radiation. Can anyone tell me their experience with a halt in treatment? Did anyone have success with the treatment but then have it stopped without a replacement treatment? I have a few weeks before I'll be faced with this (one more cycle and CT), so if you can help with questions I should ask, please let me know. Thanks.
