TracyD Posted March 7, 2008 Share Posted March 7, 2008 I just got my scan results today after eight weeks on this clinical trial and the results are "stable disease". For the first time in just over a year I have scans which show no growth, no spread, and some decrease in the pleural effusion. The cancer had been growing slowly and steadily for the past 13 months, and it has stopped dead in its tracks. Now comes the hard part of the trial, randomization. I will do another three cycles, six weeks, and then have scans again. If there is progression at any time the study will be unblinded, and, if I am getting the placebo, I will have the option of taking the drug again. This is going to be hard, as I will know in a few days, based on side effects, whether I'm getting the study drug or a placebo. If I'm getting the placebo I'm going to start to worry too much. At least it's only six weeks at the most. I am feeling good and living life to the fullest. Just ask my family, I think they have a hard time keeping up with me!!!
