      I do not have experience with the drug you are taking but wanted to let you know that you are not alone anymore, you have found a family of people who are walking in your shoes as we speak and we care about you and what you are going though. I dont know what the best treatment would be for you. This is one of the hardest parts of the fight is choosing which treatment is best. You can research here and I suggest you do, educated yourself as much as possible. I am Stage IV and have been to hell and back but I am stil here. Please stay with us. We really do care and someone with your drug experience should post soon but weekends are kinda slow sometimes. There is always hope.

       Love, Sharon in Reno Stage IV
