Jun 30, 2019 · Pembro-Taxol-Carbo Treatment for Bladder Cancer in Cancer

So we came back from our visit at Mayo’s. One of the better experiences we’ve experienced. Doctors were able to give my grandmother options to continue to fight this stubborn bladder cancer. One option was to start her on Pembro-Taxol-Carbo regimen this is immunotherapy and chemo combo. We like this option because the chemo can be given in small doses and can be slowly increases depending on grandma’s tolerance. Has anyone been through or knows of someone who has had this treatment?

Thank you all for your advice. We will arrive on Monday and have her test done on Tuesday and see her doctor on Wednesday. We’re hoping for good news.

Jun 16, 2019 · Bladder Cancer/Small cell bladder cancer in Cancer

My 82 yo grandma was diagnosed with bladder cancer on January 2019. She is other wise healthy. We tried 6 treatments of immunotherapy but as of her last scan the tumor has grown. Due to her size of tumor it has completely obstructed her ir one flow therefore she has bilateral nephrostomy tubes. All blood work looks good and normal kidney function. Our doctors back home In Texas don’t want to operate her due to the size. We are heading over to MAYO in the hopes of having a surgeon give her some good news. Anyone here been through something similar? Her tumor is contained only to her bladder and has not spread according to her latest scan. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
