Thanks Marion. Luckily we have a direct number to Dr Tham at the VA and will be calling her every week to make sure that everything is in order.March 2, 2010 at 2:57 am in reply to: I ‘m so vain, I probably think this thread is about me #36170
Lucky You…. Marc is so worried about loosing his hair. I told him that I would be happy to get a Chemo Cut as well.
Unfortuantely the Dr was not in Friday for us to ask wihy the Gemcitabine would be eliminated. We will be calling her first thing Monday morning to ask about it. I was just wondering if anyone else that was getting this particular chemo has experienced that as well.

I am a HUGE 80’s Fan!!!
I think you are right Janet. Another reason I thought it was strange that they had scheduled the chemo only 15 minutes after a consult. But we are talking about the VA here.

And Lainy, they did not start the chemo because like Janet said, it was just a Consult to discuss the Chemo. Marc is ready for the Chemo as his bilirubin levels are down to a 5 like they wanted. They are just concerned about the extra
I went back to this thread I found and realized that the IPT I was asking about was Insulin Potentiation Therapy. The guy who brought this up in this thread stopped posting in 2004 and has not responded to any of the posts since. Does anyone know anymore about this?
Getting ready to leave for Marc
