This is my 1st post. 1st diagnosed in 4/16 with Stage 3b NSCLC mets to lymph nodes. 6 rounds of Carboplatin/Alimta along with radiation 5xweek for 6 weeks. Pet at end of October showed no active cancer.
June/2017: It's baaack. Lungs, lymph nodes, and now, bone, too. Started Ketruda + Zometa 1st of June last year until December when my oncologist said she couldn't tell whether my tumors were "glowing" due growth or the immune system attacking them. Her options were: 1) Stay on the Keytruda and see what happens. 2) More chemo, 3) do nothing(!). Went to MD Anderson for 2nd opinion and Tagrisso was recommended. Started 1/2018. Any opinions and suggestions are appreciated. Side effects? Scan results since starting? Anything? Anyone?
