So, I am done with treatment.
He doesn't think any current phase one or two trials would benefit me, or if there is chance it might, I won't qualify due to liver damage from tumors and toxicity of chemo over last four years. I tod him I didn't want to do anything with low probability of help and high probability of inducing misery. He was very understanding and agreed.
I am visiting my sister in Austin till Sunday, then Monday gonna get signed up for Palliative care/hospice, after I get home.
I have pain and nerve problems in my left arm. It is not chemo induced neuropathy, it is either a spinal met or a ruptured disc in my neck probably C5 or 6. This bothers me more now than the ascites and liver pain do.
If it is a met, could get radiation to alleviate pain. If it is a disc, probably just going to treat with pain meds.
Thanks for all thoughts and prayers. Too old timers and newbies, if you haven't figured it out by now, I truly love this little club, even though I wish I didn't belong. The kindness, caring, support, and generosity of the members overwhelms me, and I can't thank you all enough for everything you shared these lasr four years.
