Doctor suggested adding Avastin to the current TMZ dose and schedule of 5/23, or doing Avastin with CCNU, or going to Dana Farber in Boston for clinical trials. We feel a little lost! My husband read a while back that Avastin had a lot of bad side effects, so he is affraid of that (quality of life and at the end not work either), and he is affraid that once he start avastin he is not longer qualified for a lot of clinical trials. So Doctor suggested to try a clinical trial first and then go to avastin if it doesnt work.
What are your opinions? I don't know much about clinical trials and don't even know what questions I should be asking. Do you guys have any suggestions on that and questions I need to ask?
How many of you are taking Avastin? How well are you tolerating it? Can Avastin put cancer into remission? What other drugs should we use with avastin to synergize its effect on cancer?
Do you recommend clinical trials or just going with avastin and other off label meds?
I really appreciate if you give me some info or advice! Thank you very much for your time!
