Say you are sick with cancer. If you got so far and you are still alive you should hold on a little bit more.
I read every day things about new discoveries, ways to treat this menace.
For example, the immunotherapy is something worth checking. Specifically, the PD-L1. The scientific article can be read at this site: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3563263/
They explain the T-cells with this treatment to do their work and kill the cancer cells. It should be good, results are very good.
There are trials all over the world. But where I am, I need to satisfy some conditions:
- I need to be fit to get the treatment (my other organs should work good)
- I need to have a progression on my disease
Unfortunately I have a low kidney function and my disease is stabile. What does this mean? I cannot try to new treatment! At least until I get really sick and my kidneys are doing well…
I would like very much to hear from your experience about this PD-L1 treatment. Is it accessible to you? Have you already tried it?
I worry that I might collapse before this treatment is widely available.
