I have a question for all my warrior friends, I received my scan reports from MDA last night, here are the results as follows
1. The 5 nodal tumors in my neck are displaying no cancer.
2. The MRI shows 2 lesions in my brain but are not cancer.
3. The CT continue to display 5 lung nodules. Not Cancerous.
4. The 2.5 Centimeter tumor in my liver has stayed the same in size but is still active. (STABLE DISEASE)
iIt’s been 4 months since my previous scans. The IPI/NIVO has been rough. I am deciding on if I should take the 4th dose of just move on with NIVO. MDA is leaving the decision to me. I am currently waiting for Colitis results.
My question is, does Stable mean the immunotherapy is working,? MDA just explains, nothing has progressed, and the activity everywhere except my liver has totally disappeared. Basically my lungs and neck are good now. My liver still has a 7.0 pet scan uptake. Same as 4 months ago. So it’s still active. Previously I went from no tumors to a 2.5CM in 2 months. Now it’s been 4 months and it’s the same.
I was wondering if you can share your thoughts based on your stories fighting this disease.
