    Latest Scan results

    Well I go the results from my last scan done on Saturday today. There is no change. I am stable. Still just two spots  at 8mm each. Doctor is thinking it could just be scar tissue or dead tissue.  We will follow up with scans in three months to  keep and eye on it. Doctor said alot of times when spots this small are cut out and tested they are on longer cancer. This is what I am hoping and praying mine are. He told me that there is a 60% chance I am cured. He is calling my results a full response.

    Prayers to all,

    Nancy

    Congratulations!

    I am very happy for such a positive report! 

    Don't be a stranger!  News like this is welcome any time!

    Scans!

    Nancy,

    Good to hear from you. I've been wondering about you. Along with Lou, that's now 2 good bits of news from Vanderbilt. I sure would like to make it 3 next week.

    Celebrate the news with lots of smiles and a few stress relieving sighs, you've earned it after 6 cycles off IL2.

    i'm smiling for you! --David

    High Fevers

    Hello, my nephew is currently doing low dose IL2 treatment as part of a trial at UCLA for his Epithelioid Sarcoma.  Today he has recieved dose 7.  Since Friday nights the fevers and rigor started and happening more often.  His last fever was 105.6. I was wondering what the highest temp for any of you?  Of course my sister is going to ask at what point they will stop the IL2 but they for sure wanted to get a minimum of 7.  Also, thank you all for the valuable information on here.  I let my sister know to lube up his skin if he can tolerate and try the coca cola for nausea.  God Bless you all on your journy and thank you from the bottom of our hearts

    Update available?

    Very interesting but now somewhat old message trail.

    Hate to ask but how did this work out for the people involved?
