Results are in from latest scan. My remaining tumors have been shrinking from the IL-2! I will be readmitted on the 30th for round #3 of IL-2. Still some issues with bone mets but we will deal with that later if they remain. I look forward to the treatment. I don't look forward to miserable side effects. I'll be out of circulation until at least thanksgiving. Who wants to come and visit? I'll need someone to rake leaves! I probably won't feel good again until the snow flies. My post Il-2 skin peeling and redness will be a hit on Halloween. Can't wait. I think that for the next week and a half I am giving myself a green light to eat, drink, and party too much. Just more fun and games. See, there is life with cancer. Sometimes we have to look a little harder.
There have been many new people on board. Sorry about that. But here is a brief synopsis of my past couple years.
I have been very strong and fit since always. March 2011 brought me a radical nephrectomy. By oct. 2011 I was loaded with mets. I began the clinical trial of MDX-1106 in dec. 2011. I responded beautifully and was nearly cured until a few new mets developed in june 2013. I then began with the IL-2 in july 2013. Results are above.
To everyone. Keep looking for the right treatment. Don't take the first suggestion from your Dr. It may limit future options. There is plenty of information out there now. Read and learn. Choose carefully. Good luck to everyone. We can do this. FLY. Fox loves you!
