Sample Schedule for Trial

So, just because I feel like sharing, here is the sample schedule for the trial at NCI that I am hoping to join. The contact person for the trial sent this to me. I am definitely going to have to have my Mom here when I get accepted to the trial! No one else will be able to care for Captain Adorable for this long--he will already be way stressed to be without me this much. He needs his Oma! (And maybe I need her too.)

Here is a sample schedule

Monday get screening scans
Tuesday actual screenin appointment
Wed start study drug. This is an 8 hour day because of study tests. This counts as day 1

Thurs. Day 2 one blood test

Day 7. Tuesday doctor visit blood test ekg

Day 14 same as day 7 but there are extra ekgs. Time at hospital about 6 hours

Day 21 same as day 7

After this time you will come back every 3 weeks
