My husband was diagnosed with lung cancer stage 3 earlier this year. Over Easter he was in hospital having surgery (a lone Tony to remove 3/5 of his upper left lobe). Five weeks post op he started cheomotherapy. That has now finished and he was put forward to start a new trial drug. He had a body and brain scan prior to the trial start date which both cameback clear to our delight.
He has had had three lots of the trial drugs so far (2 injections every 3wks for 12mths), so still very early days. There have been a couple of side effects but nothing too bad.
On seeing his oncologist this morning, it was mentioned that one of his liver counts was raised (this was also raised slightly during chemo and also at the pre trial bloods), but it it getting bigger each time, but only by a very small amount.
Could you tell me what might’ve causing this and could it be a indicator that the cancer is back?
Thank you for taking the time to read this post and I look forward to a reply.
