Bye Bye Clinical Trial


Recommended Posts

So we are now off this latest trial. I'm starting to lose track here on how many my dad has started. Looks like there are no more convential treatment options available. Either a Phase 1 trial, if there is something else to try, or we can try to see some "unconventional" treatments.

Anyway, if someone has any suggestions or recommendations on a Dr in Philly, maybe Fox Chase, or Sloan Kettering, we had seen someone there before, it would be much appreciated.

You can PM at palves@optonline.net.

Haven't updated the profile in a while. I have to go back and track it all again. But I don't think he did Tarceva but rather 1 or 2 different trials since last summer.

I'm sorry the clinical trial didn't go the way you hoped. However, I did want to share that I live in PA and went to Fox Chase. Dr. Goldberg did my pneumonectomy and was wonderful. Two other surgeons who operated on me (one was at Geisinger medical center ) told me I was inoperable and NO ONE could remove the tumor. Dr. Goldberg did and I have been NED since then.

The hospital itself was wonderful (before and after surgery) and because C is what they do they seemed to be much better at answering questions and getting things done. I would give them a try if they are close to you.

If you want any other information feel free to PM me!!

Good luck..
