    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I have been taking temador for since june,2010 almost 2 years. Then I had a recurrance. I did gamma knife and I am waiting for a mri may 1rst. My doctors want to do avastin with cpt11. I am not to sure about this because my general health has been excellent, good blood counts. I am afraid if i do this chemo it will weaken my immune system and it will be all down hill from there. So i am concidering alternative treatment. Vaccine at Duke clinical trial. also the burnsinsky from texas?
