Well, what a difference 6 weeks makes. 6 weks ago my first every 6 wek scan for the clinical trial I am on revealed that the tumors in my lungs had not shrunk, but did change in appearance. yesterday's result was that the tumors have all but gone away, no resolution, noting recognizable.
I am in shock, and this has not yet really set in. I still have to go over the results with my Oncologist and the clinical trial doc's but feel pretty good that halfway through this, the tumors are almost gone. I guess this is still also good for the tumors in my Lymphatic system in my Mediastynum, as they are still too small to show up on a CT and were only revealed on a PET. Maybe those have shrunk too.
Thanks to all of the good mojo, and feedback from others who have had success on Carboplatin, Erbitux and 5FU or a combination of them.
Still not curable, but I will take the good news anyway.
