I have been away for a bit, as I was dealing with side effects from a severe reaction to the trial drug I was given. Before my third round of chemo, I had another CT scan. I also had one full bag and three minutes of the trial drug before all went bad and I was removed from the trial.
My Doctor was jumping with joy, as he discuss my results. My tumor in my hila region of my left lung has resolved. Went from 5.1 to nothing. Some post obstructive atelectasis has improved leaving only a residual 0.8 x 1.4cm nodular density in the posterior left lower lobe. Please anyone know what the last sentence means?
My fifth lesion 1.1 nodule left lower lung against a major fissure has decreased from 1.0cm to 0.3cm. There is a 3mm nodule in the right upper lobe is unchanged. (Did not know I had one and not sure what it means by unchanged).
Liver: I had innumerable liver metastases. They have decrease in size and number. The larger lesion was 3.3cm has decreased to 1.6 cm. The next largest lesion was 1.1cm in the right lobe of liver. All other lesions are under 10mm. I have several cysts not cancer which remain unchanged.
My cancer has not spread any place else and may not be in my bones after all. I will find more when I have my fourth round of chemo on 02-27-2017.
Is this normal for SCLC to have such a response with only 2 rounds of chemo?
Does someone know the answers I am not sure about in the report that I put in parentheses?
Would someone agree maybe what little of the immunotherapy I received may of helped in these changes?
My Doctor was not able to answer this, so I just said prayers and miracles.
I welcome opinions on this post. Oh yes I have now lost all my hair...ugh
Thank you Kym
