Re: Asking for help with my endometrial cancer
HI, I see no one has responded as yet, so Idk if you made a decision or not. If your doctor suggested it, it is worth looking into. You will get what is called an Informed Consent, that you review, that tells you all about the trial in detail, what you can expect, how many visits, what tests they will do (like blood pressure or any lab work). Most of the time, cancer therapies are tried and true, but the most effective one for your type of cancer and the stage of cancer, may not yet be available, and the way you get access to the newest treatment, is to participate in a clinical trial.
Once I know more about my cancer, I plan to ask my oncologist if he is aware of any clinical trials which might benefit me. However, please realize, this is just one person's opinion, you need to do what is right for you. In any clinical trial, you can ask all the questions you need, before consenting, and even once you are in a trial, if at Any Time, you want to leave the study, you are completely free to do so.
You are in charge of your medical care, only you can decide if this is something you should try.
