I started when I got home to New Zealand three weeks after my third lung laser thoracotomy surgery in Europe which made me to NED.
When I started this regime my oncologist in New Zealand contacted Dr Lin to ask him the dosage and duration. He replied that I should initially take for three years the dosage I am on.
All my scans have been clear since I started ADAPT.
I contacted Dr Lin by email a couple of months ago to ask him how the trial is going and that I am doing well on it and how long does he think I should keep taking the medications
He replied that he is very pleased to hear from me and glad I am doing so well but that is all he said and he hasn't replied to any more emails.
So my oncologist and the head oncologist and I all think that it will be safest for me to continue Adapt indefinitely until it stops working or something better comes along. I have already exceeded my oncologist's estimate of my life expectancy but she seems to be happy to be proved wrong.
