Rick is in day 3 of his new clinical trial and so far, so good! He has not had any side effects from the two new oral medications he’ll be taking each day. The doctors and nurses at Virginia Cancer Center monitored him and his vital signs for four hours after he took the first two pills Monday morning. Likely because he responded so well, right before they sent him home, the nurse informed Rick the drug company had just placed him in a “special” cohort of trial patients – as of Monday afternoon, they doubled his dosage of both meds. Take that, you #*&@% lung cancer!!
