I cannot believe it has been so long since I last posted. Sorry. Morphine is not my friend.
I am on the trial!
I am on the trial drug!
Officially started last Thursday. Friday I was dancing almost totally pain free. Absolutely ecstatic. Saturday I was in hell. Lower than a snake's belly. It seems that my tender little stomach is taking some extra time to get used to the drug. I think I have experienced the full gamut of listed side effects. This is probably not good for the trial stats and every second day they talk of taking me off the medication, but I am being uncharacteristically assertive. I can do this. My stomach will rise to this occasion (hopefully not literally - again).
This whole trial process has been a roller coaster. The baseline studies have been scary. Latest scans show 'spots' on my lungs and a couple of 'specks' on my brain.
