So my scans from almost two weeks ago show mixed results. Some nodules on my lungs grew just slightly, some did not change at all, and the enlarged hilar lymph node is the same. My oncologist thinks it is time to move on, and wants me to consider the LY2875358/anti- c-met antibody trial. I think this is the former MDX1106/BMS936558 trial. The patient information only lists a few side effects, including nausea, diarrhea, accelerated heart rate and possibly enlarged thyroid. I'd like to hear more about this from anyone in the trial, or from anyone who is just in the know. Thanks!
Oh, and it turns out that the extra pain I felt in my neck and back, you know, the pain we always think is more cancer.... well I got a new memory foam pillow and guess what-- no neck and back pain.
