Then he tells me he gets nauseous if he twists to get something or crosses his legs or bends over. Weak, so I call his nurse at Sloan. Today was going to be treatment but instead a bag of fluid to hydrate. Plus CT scan. Progression in peritoneal and retroperitoneal. Nurse in doctors office also said increased disease in pelvis starting to obstruct lower ureter. He can pee though. Lungs are questionable now too. I think she felt bad calling...
Onward. We go to Irinotecan and maybe 5FU not sure calling doctor at 10:00 am tomorrow for consult back to Basking Ridge Sloan campus Thursday.
As ive said before. This cancer is Einstein level. Figured out how to mutate itself to survive these drugs. Never saw anything like it. Maybe Irinotecan is the answer. We’ll see! We are off the trial.
