Guest waiting_wondering Posted August 11, 2004 Share Posted August 11, 2004 Well as much as you all wished for darkness on my pet, it just wasn't meant to be. My adrenal gland lit up like a christmas tree. So the med onc suggests that the adrenal be removed allow for a couple of weeks to recover and then start gem/nav once every three weeks for 6 cycles. With this type of treatment however she is only giving me a 1 in 5 chance of survival. As I stated before I wasn't up to the chemo, but she's pretty insistant. Says the trials are last resort. If I do no chemo at all it is a GUARANTEE that the big "C" will come back somewhere else. Although its not in my lymph system, it's in my blood stream. So again what's a girl to do? Decisions, Decisions, Decisions. I guess I need to stop using the Early Stage Forum too cause it don't look, talk, walk or smell like early stage no more. Any suggestions out there? Anyone had gem/nav? Med onc says its much less toxic, won't lose my hair, little to no nausea and I have the option to stop when I want. Anyone have any words of wisdom to help a gal when she's down!! Take Care, Godspeed and Praying for all of you here, Pat Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
