Hello Brownbagger, Well I'm not an old timer, not a newbie, but coming up on 2 yrs here. Don't know why I'm still hangin 'round here on CT, but I am. Must be the caregiver in me. The newbies that do any kind of reading on here mostly likely are familiar w/who some of us are.
Nice pics. I'm worn out just looking at them
Just wanted to mention that it appears the "new mindset" is that clinical trials are not necessarily considered the "last resort" to tx anymore. Rather they
(whoever that is) recommend considering trials @ each major tx decision.
So, having said that, we have a fairly new sticky thread: Clinical Trials & Important Links. On there is listed various resources, incl phone support
to assist in the search for suitable clinical trials for which one may qualify should you want to have an idea of what may even be doable for you (location wise + other criteria) to present to or ask Dr. K about @ some point in time. I know you said you were going to let her handle that end, just throwing it out there.
Good to hear you don't mind the port & hoping the switch brings you some good results.
