Okay slight road block....
The carboplatin is roughly $100 a bottle. She can have a maximum of 5 treatments on the stuff and she will need a whole bottle. I know $100 does not sound like a lot, but I am barely making ends meet as it is and am trying to get into college :/
Cisplatin is compareable chemo, and cheaper, but the oncologist said it would make her very ill and put her into renal failure.
I'm going to try to talk to my parents and try to save $100 between now and the middle of november when we do treatment but this is kind of bummer news. I'm also going to call and see what a CT or MRI might cost [when i say I am an employee of a clinic] because ultimatley knowing where the tumor is and how big it is would be helpful in choosing treatment. I highly doubt i could afford a CT but i have to ask about it anyway.
We could just try another round of doxorubricin, but i really want to attack this to the best of our ability.
