Not eligible for the clinical trial...

Because of my Crohn's Disease I'm not a candidate for the clinical trial for the vaccination shots. I had pretty much decided against the trial anyway. There was a chance I'd be put in the placebo group and that is not something I wanted to risk. If we were treating depression or something, then okay. But just being out there with no protection against cancer returning would be a scary thought.

So, I'm going on pill form of chemo for the next two years. I'll also get an infusion every two weeks of Avastin. It's not a chemo drug because it's not a's a biological agent. So, I'm on biotherapy, now. Sounds better than chemotherapy!
