No, not my 19th nervous breakdown. That's for rookies. Although I am beginning to think that my tenure in the MDX-1106 study is waning. I think it is safe to say that essentially ALL soft tissue mets are GONE! And there was a **** load of them. Maybe 1 or 2 small hyperdensities which could be anything or nothing. ( I probably swallowed some lego pieces when I was 5). However, I am having difficulty cleaning out my bones. Last year 2 very painful bone mets healed right up. But now, I continue to have slow growth in a couple mets in my ribs and spine. Even after radiation. One rib has broken and it is constantly clicking and popping. Thankfully it is now painless. I do have another painful rib(but improving) which shows nothing on my ct scan, so who knows. Anyway, Next scan is in 6 weeks. I've got to think that if the bones keep getting worse, then there will be a change in treatment. Not sure if I become ineligible for mdx due to progression or if just another intervention will take place. Not time to panic yet. I didn't even want to discuss it with my MD as I didn't want to place the thought in her head. I'll admit I expected worse news at my visit but DAMN! I am doing GREAT! (I wrote good but changed it). Who wouda thunk it? Hell, my wife had even been practicing grocery shopping for one. She bought a half loaf of bread and a 3 pack of beer! And yes, My sweet doctor gave me a big smile and a hug. Keep the faith Y'all. FLY.
Fox loves you!
