So I just finished up the Everolimus trial, took my last pills on 3/20. I had a scan on Monday and oncologist appointment today. NED!! Feeling really good right now. I am not sure if I was getting the placebo or not but I definitely feel like I have more energy now. The Doc told me he has patients on Affinitor that have absolutely no side effects other than fatigue and that is all I ever felt but thought could be just because I am not a young buck. It has been 62 weeks since my surgery. Although i am done with the medication, I am still technically on the trial and have to follow-up with scans and labs every 6 months x 2 years, then yearly. I just want to say thanks to everyone here for the advice and words of encouragement. I also want to say to those newly diagnosed to be strong and confident. This is not a death sentence, you can recover and beat this thing.
Best wishes to all ,
