Hi Mark - I am trying to reply to this post:
and my answer won't go through. I get a message saying "Error - Forum ID is missing". The member's profile seems fine and I've added tags. Below is the answer I tried to post:
Dear Johneen, it may be some comfort to know that this is a common question! I have not had Alimta but we've had a number of threads recently in which people comment on how tiring it can be. We've also had threads in which people whose cancer is otherwise stable inquire about taking a break.
See for example this discussion, in the course of which Dr West comments:
"Just about every expert I know feels that breaks from treatment are very appropriate and reasonable for plenty of their patients."
- and another, in which Dr Pennell describes the experience of a patient who took a cruise and an Alimta break simultaneously:
I am militantly pro-holiday and believe that all cancer patients should have as many as possible. I trust this will not be your last summer, and hope you live to see many more. Very best.
