We are having early response to Xeloda

There has been overall decrease in metastatic cells activity.
Continue with Chemo Xeloda for another 3 months
Continue Xgeva shots monthly
No radiation is offered due to multiple lesions in different locations
Two new bony lesions were discovered, however they were missed in the initial impressions and report.
Today Multiple sides include :
Right side rib 3, 6, L5, sacrum
Left side T10, T12, L5
and multiple sites in the pelvic.
ONCOLOGIC FINDINGS (OSSEOUS STRUCTURES) Mixed lytic and sclerotic bony metastases (predominately lytic) are seen in the pelvis, sacrum, lumbar spine. There has been an overall decrease in the degree of FDG uptake within numerous bony metastasis with scattered foci of
residual FDG uptake remaining.
These are the words my oncologist said at the end of my visit on Friday:
"Again, please keep in mind that the lesions they are referring to , are not new. I think we are doing well, and we have many options for your treatment"
It has been a very hard week for me. Thank you vey much for your continuos support
