Do you think it’s important for people to take part in research projects?
I would say yes. Because, because of that they get to know how not to or a way how to treat certain conditions, certain sicknesses, certain disease, yeah.
So even though it didn’t seem to work in your case?
Not wholly [laughs]. I think partially. I think it worked partially, not wholly.
Because that’s, that’s quite interesting, because you, you went in hoping that you would benefit.
Yeah, totally, uh-huh. I wished that would happen.
And now, looking back, actually even though you didn’t really benefit a great deal, you’re still quite happy to have done it?
Yes, I am, yes. Mm.
My experience, from my experience, I would say, well, if, if you’re asked to take a trial for whatever purpose, I would say, “Go ahead and do it, yeah.” It can only, good can only come of it, in my estimation, yeah. And that is you’re helping yourself and help other people who might come after you.
How important was it to you thinking about helping other people when you decided to take part? Was that part of your decision?
Not really. No, my decision was personal, really. But I know that what is good for me is good for the goose or the gander as well. So [laughs], so from my point of view if I, if I could , there’s somebody else who might need the same type of treatment to make them good. So it’s all right.
