Vaccine Clinical Trial

Postby Maelleous » Thu Feb 23, 2017 3:49 pm

I was finally able to find and (looking positive) to get into a vaccine clinical trial. For those of you who hadn't seen my previous posts, I had 3 rounds of chemo and cardiac arrest on the 3rd round in December. I have been searching for other options to avoid reoccurance but the docs stated radiation wasn't worth the risk and I can't do anymore chemo.

I did learn that in early Jan the hospital did CT scans while I was on ice and everything was clean, that was a relief, so far so good. I am getting an S-ICD installed for my heart on the 28th (just in case, they are certain it was the chemo though, but you have higher risk once you had arrest once.) Then on March 14th flying to see about getting in the trail, they do all the tests then, and assuming I have no issues, can start on the first of 4 vaccines. Hopefully they work and later this year I get the reversal and smooth sailing! Done with this stuff!

I'm sending all my best so this can help you to prevent any recurrence, since chemo is not an option! Sending strong thoughts your way : )
