I know there have been previous discussions about this drug but I wondered if there was anyone currently taking it.
I have incurable cancer which was diagnosed 16 months ago. It has an average life span of 12-14 months so I am pretty nervous. I have always refused radio and chemotherapy and relied on an immune system that I have built up over 71 years, but I have now been offered Provera. My cancer, happily, has not spread and is still all contained in my pelvic area, I have a bit of pain but have learnt to take my medication regularly so I can live a fairly normal life again. My oncologist says Provera has a high rate of blood clots because it makes your blood sticky and am sitting here looking at the box wondering if I should give it a go. Apparently it gives you a huge appetite, too, so I am trying to educate myself into eating low.calorie food and get some more exercise in.Anyone have any thoughts on this?
