I had my PET on Friday and got the results today. The good news is that the tumor in my right lung is gone. The bad news is that instead of one medium size and shrinking tumor in the upper lobe of the liver, there are now two very large tumors that occupy from 1/3 to 1/2 of the lobe. The onc says surgery is out because the anti-rejection drugs can cause tumors elsewhere to bloom. I told him that I'd talked with several people who have had liver resections and replacements but he still didn't think it was an option.
Considering the tumor growth, it appears that Zaltrap isn't working for me, so he's putting me back on Avastin and Oxy in my next session. I have to be honest here: I'm at the point now that I worry I won't see 2014, or even my birthday in May.
God Bless to all
