There havec been plenty of interesting topics concerning chemotherapy at this conference. I’m wondering if any of us have access to these lectures to listen?

Nope, that’s why they charge admission. Only registered attendees have access to the meeting notes. What topics are you specifically referring to? Maybe we can help you find info about the subject matter.

You may have already seen Dr Sue’s latest vlog is Top 5 Medications to Prevent Chemo Side Effects.  Fallon is at the very end, showing how awesome dogs can do during chemo.

Fallon's left front leg was amputated due to osteosarcoma on 10/11/17.

thanks for the vlog..  Lucky, I’ve been using all her selections.. except the rx clay.   Is it agreed that metornomics doesn’t cause the same type of GI upsets like regular chemo does?  ie  much lesser scale?

During regular chemo we never had to use any of the meds to address side effects, but we did need them for the vaccine.  We got the rx clay one time only because the office was out of the fortiflora, it serves the same purpose.  

My understanding is that metronomics dosing is very low and side effects expected are fewer than regular chemotherapy.

thanks for the reply… Am I correct that those that have gotten the vaccine. don’t use metronomics ?

For those using metronomics ,  how soon after the 4 or 6 chemo treatments did you start metronomics ?

The oncology appointment after Fallon completed 6 carboplatin chemo, she had xrays and started metronomics .  I think it was 3 weeks.
