Just had to share my good news from todays' visit to my oncologist. My tumour has shrunk from 6cm to 2cm in 3 weeks!! I went to see him not really expecting any change and just thought it would be a routine check to see how I was coping with the treatment.The registrar who I saw was amazed at the results. I know it's early days but this really gives me great hope for the future.
I am one of the 10% of people who have the EGFR mutation and I have been taking Iressa now for 3 weeks. The main side effects I have had have been acne and an itchy scalp but I can't really complain about that when it seems to be working so well.
As I am feeling so well I have decided to go ahead with the holiday which I was unsure about taking when I got my diagnosis last month. I can really look forward to it now with today's news.
