I had a scan on Thursday and it was my first "bad" scan since starting on Nivolumab in Feb. 2013.
There is a new 6mm met in the lower lobe of my right lung. Everything else remained clear. When we looked back at previous January scan, it was actually there at 3-4 mm and was viewed as a blood vessel. In the back of my mind, I figured that I would see a met at some point, it just stinks it is son soon after being declared NED In January.
the plan if action is to scan again in 6 weeks for a quick snapshot. I continue Nivolumab (one progression allowed) and will start back Sutent per the trial in 6 weeks if stable or nominal increase. If it gets large enough, a resection is planned, if more mets show up, IL-2 is planned. We are trying to knock it out quick.
Antine have good success with a single met from lung removed?
