On Tuesday I learned that I won’t be getting the trial drug. I qualified for the trial but lost the toss for the new treatment. I will be in the control group. I will be getting the standard of care, Taxotere. I don’t know how many cycles. But, it’s two weeks on, then one week off.

This makes my trial results 50-50. I got it the last time and missed out this one. Once I start a program, I will be disqualified from others. Hopefully, this will be effective on it’s own. It will at least be good to be getting treatment again. I am getting an occasional cough. My chest pains and back aches are easing. My earache and headaches continue. I will go through another brain MRI. It been about 3 months since the last one. It would be nice to know what’s going on.
