    Oh No

    Tried chemo, was not considered a good candidate. Med speak for life threatening.

    What kind of treatment?

    Decision Point

    Got some oral medication and decided not to use as bad experience from related meds. Decided to try halving the reg chemo dose. Took course of 2 instead of course of 4. Very dicey. Next appointment will decide what to do next.
