The doctor discussed with me the options of continuing in the study or leaving it. He related it to quality of life and was concerned about how bad off I was last treatment cycle. I told him I'd rather keep going until I get my next CT scan and then use that added information to help make the decision. He lowered my test drug dose from 50mg twice to 40mg twice a day and kept me on my fluid reduction medication.
I don't go back to see them this treatment cycle, so have to keep aware of my situation and call them if things start to go downhill intolerably.
It's hard to make decisions like this. As each time I leave a treatment mode, I have fewer and fewer options. I'm running out of them as is. Only one more I know of, and that's Stivarga. 😱
