jaminkw Posted February 21, 2008 Share Posted February 21, 2008 I just got my last chemo cocktail on Tuesday and tackled the queston of the Avastin Maintenane (finally) with my oncologist. I've only managed to take all this in a little at a time. When I asked how long I would be on it, she looked me right in the eye and said until the disease comes back or the person gets tired of it. I asked if there would be a lengthening of time in between infusions scheduled for every three weeks and she said no--the trials or whatever of Avastin maintenance is to continue on 21-day cycles. I'm already doing that "there's no way I can travel to Orlando every three weeks for chemo for the rest of my life. I'm on a prescription replacement plan and it's only good at MDACC. If I went closer to home, they would have to reapply, and I really don't want to leave MDACC anyway. I would appreciate feedback from anyone who has been on Avastin maintenance and for how long, and if stopped, for what reasons. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
