My Oncologist is Going to Kill Me!

I finally put a new printer cartridge in the printer and printed out THREE articles off the Internet for him about "salvage" treatments. Some indication platinum (carbo) is worth a try again--we know I lasted 6+ months on it. Hexalen stands up well.
The HMO has yet to send me the authorization forms--heard from me again. This all depends on what they find--I would not treat on numbers alone but on what they see. At least I can go in knowing a few things--but still the "biggies" like topotecan, taxotere, more taxol, and VP16 are out as far as I'm concerned. One of the articles has good ammunition for going for Hexalen.

IT'S GOOD TO STAY INFORMED AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED AND GOOD FOR YOU!!!
MOST DOCTORS DON'T LIKE THE FACT THAT WE ARE INDEED GETTING MORE AND MORE KNOWLEDGE.
THEY LIKE THE ROLE OF DOCTOR AND THEY LIKE OUR ROLE AS PATIENT. GOOD WORK!!
HE WON'T KILL YA!! HE WILL KNOW YOU ARE WELL INFORMED , THAT'S ALL.

s Margaret

How could your oncologist feel anything but love toward you????? You gotta make him laugh like you do me.
Keep working with that HMO. Sometimes it takes numerous requests to get a positive answer from them.
Also there is gemzar. One of the ladies in my support group is having sucess with it, after being on so many other chemos.
And gleevec is right around the corner. It's currently in phase II trials via NIH. Cindy who writes Conversation newsletter is currently involved with the trial.
Just hang on Margaret. Better days are coming!!!!
We'll all be with you tomorrow, so scooch down on that exam table please!!!

Appreciation

I think your doctor may be very glad that you are a patient who does their home work.
When my mother went through radiation for breast cancer she took the doctor articles on things she wanted to use to help heal her skin.
The out come was a better recovery period and the doctor was happy.
A lot of good doctors do appreciate additional support for them to consider.
If they say no to one thing........ try something else.
They can't think of everything. Sometimes, they might not think of things because they have simply been busy.
We are partners in our own healing.

Margaret I bet he will say he wished all his patients were as pro-active as you are!!! I think its great that you are doing research to take with you. Knowledge is power, and yes, our oncologists are smart men and women and hopefully up on all the newest treatments and such, but I am sure he will be very appreciative of your info!!
Hugs dear lady!!
