    Ran out of options - no more chemo treatments other than clinical trials

    Does anyone out there have experience with clinical trials? My cancer is spreading to many different locations and my oncologist doesn't see any hope for more treatments and has referred me to hospice, etc., Am considering Hemp oil capsules and will continue with my Chinese herbs. If anyone has positive suggestions I'd love to hear them. Thanks y'all,

      Hi Eliza - just wondering if you ever went on Erbitux? If so how was your experience? It's my next line of treatment & im not particularly looking forward to it.

      I just came off Erbitux - didn't do a thing for me, in fact new tumors appeared over the 6 weeks I was on it, and the one I had before got larger, But that is my experience, It may just work for you, even if it didn't for me. I thought I'd be continuing with it, but with my scan from last week they decided there is nothing more they could offer me on the cheno side of life. None of this is relevant for you - you may have a completely different response. I wish you well. Keep the faith and stay positive - I'm trying on those levels, Good luck.

      Oddly, there are all in some cahoots. Check out the section on history and you will see connections on everything from artificial sweetener to the Manhattan project to Celebrex and more. It is scary.
