Clinical Trials

Dr. Laudi presented a clinical trial at my appt this morning. Clinical trials are important to cancer treatment because they build on knowledge and create new standards of care. The trial he is suggesting will involve chemotherapy and I need many tests to establish my baselines.
-I signed the consent for NCCTG/N0392.
-urine analysis
-brain MRI
-Bone scan
I am disappointed that the Tamoxifen did not work for long. I knew something was up after the relative calm of the past few months. My pain has been increasing, along with my nausea/ vomiting. I feel exhausted and drained.
