asmakis Posted September 6, 2006 Share Posted September 6, 2006 The doctor called my parents today to say that my dad does not qualify for the clinical trial of Eributux and Tarceva because it is only in phase 1 and it needs to be in phase 2 before my dad can have it. It won't be in phase 2 for another 6-9 months. So right now, my dad is on nothing and this is very hard for me to accept. He's been feeling pretty good, and he's still strong. I just feel like there has to be something out there. Please read my dad's profile below because I've added more details on chemo types and durations. My parents have an appointment with the oncologist tomorrow and I would like to have some things writen down for my parents to inquire about. Prior to this post, it was mentioned that he should have had a single agent chemo the second time around instead of a combination. This news bothers and I'm determined to get to the bottom of it. I'm asking for names of chemo's that others have been on or any advise or questions for my parents to ask tomorrow. I truly appreciate all your responses- it has really helped myself and my family.
