cathy Posted June 25, 2004 Share Posted June 25, 2004 I always tell myself to go with my instincts..Let me tell you about my instincts.. Before Iressa was FDA approved I asked my dads doctor if we could maybe see what it was all about, this was before it was ever mentioned on the boards, it was just a little research I was doing, you know those times searching and searching the internet until we could find something to give us hope..His response was "well I dont think it is going to be the silver bullet everyone thinks it is" I remember thinking maybe its not the CURE but it sure has shown much promise, that was just one of many dumb things that he said.. When we went to U of Mich.. I was hoping somehow to at least see the doctor that was working on a drug to reduce copper in the cancer patient, when I mentioned it to the onc that we were seeing he chuckled a little and "oh you mean the copper man" Alrighty then, another glimmer of hope these "doctors" just shot down. Last night I watched a beautiful story on HBO about the doctor who did the first heart surgery and he was laughed at too well maybe not laughed at but they didnt believe it was possible..All I kept thinking the whole movie was what about the treatments dad could of had especially the copper one..No one was listening.. Just wanted to tell you to listen to your inner voice if you are ever in doubt..I dont even know if this post makes any sense..I think I just wanted someone to listen, and of course somewhere to vent...
