Yesterday, I contacted my doctor in New York and submitted my blood test and some other data to him so that he could prescribe the metronomic chemo drug to me. I have not been successful in getting the drug locally as I found out that most pharmacies and hospitals do not stock this drug anymore. It's a very old drug. As for IL-2 (Interleukin-2), although I am able to sourced them overseas, I am not sure how to bring the drug into the country. I have a few options. The first is that I go to China personally and bring the drug in say once every two weeks. The second option is that I import the drug directly and take a chance that the customs department will not impound the drug upon arrival. The third option is that I go to China to seek treatment. Apply for a one year visa and look for a place to stay close to the clinic. As for my caregiver, hire a local person. None of the options looks attractive enough though option three seems to be doable.
I will be meeting someone, hopefully sometime next week to learn more about Hyperthermia. He just came back with his wife after a three week treatment in Germany. He met three other Malaysian families while at the clinic. I am eager to learn about his wife's experience as well as the other families as it would affect my decision whether to go Germany to seek treatment or not. It is unlikely I would be able to get IL-2 treatment for now (the options however remain open in the future), so Hyperthermia therapy seems to be my best bet for now.
