Well I have my scan result - not great but also not surprising.
1. The lytic lesion on L1 has increased in size and there is some soft tissue bulging into the spinal canal. Immediately referred for an MRI which I also had today. Possible referral to spine surgeon for surgery. She did tell me however tell that it is possible the radiotherapy I had may not have taken effect yet?
2. New 18mm lymph node in aorta pulmonary window
3. A previous nodule lower lobe on left lung of 3mm now 6mm. There are also sub mm nodule in the periphery of the mid zone off left lung and 2 pleural based nodules in right lower lobe posteriorly 5mm and 6mm.
4. Left psoas lesion increased from 8mm to 10mm
Not to mention nodule on my thyroid which has also increased but I am booked for surgery on 4 July.
Oncologist will review MRI and speak with spinal surgeon and then await thyroid surgery result to consider further treatment which appears will be Votrient. She has also mentioned possible inclusion in a trial for Nivolumab (sp?) vs envirllmos (???).
Certainly not the report I wanted but my oncologist appears to be covering everything. Any advice???
