I hear over a year and a half ago this was a promising up and coming way to treat cancers previously "untreatable" with radiation.

to use SBRT or stereotactic radiation combined with nuvolumab, an immunologic therapy to accomplish the same thing. It's called the "escopal"effect. I've a few more weeks before follow up scans. I hope I have a response like I usually do to my treatments. At least for another year.
