      I m no longer on chemo. When I was,. I had three different protocols, each with a combination of 2-3 drugs., none of which worked for me but remember everyone reacts differently. With the first, they gave me an anti nausea med and I was ok. No hair loss to speak of. With the second and third I had hair loss and a lot of nausea. But that may well have been because I was on so much pain med, which can wreck havoc with your stomach. When all these failed to work, we asked about clinical trials. And that is what I'm on now, immunotherapy, with very good results. I have no side effects to speak of. But I think the drill is you have to go through the recognized protocols before you can pursue clinical trials. And then you have to be off chemo for a month before they can start you. The one thing that I would share with you is sometimes its darkest before the light, so if that happens, keep a positive attitude and know anything is possible. Good luck and God bless.

    What have you folks done so far for treatments and how long has it been since it was diagonosed . My hubby has the same thing and I would be interested in finding out how you folks deal with the cancer and living with it. Thanks Patty
