I just returned from the Mayo Clinic where I got some very good news re: lab and scan results. My Tg level is down to 125, from a high of 1225, then 333, now 125. That's quite an improvement for seven weeks of therapy, including one week off recovering from the side effects of the drug.
Scan reports were all positive, too. Sizes of the multiple tumors were reduced, from about 10 percent to over 30 percent. Even better news is that the image shading indicates the tumor tissue is dying, so even if a tumor is 90 percent as big as before a good portion of the tumor tissue is now dead tissue.
Is it too soon to celebrate? :)
