Good news

Apologies if variations of this have popped up , I keep losing my messages .

Taken off trial , Immunotherapy ( Pembrolizumab ) in May , but CT scan shows now , stable disease , with " Masses " , in retreat " marginally shrunk " .

The thinking is that my immune system has been re educated and is doing the work .

After six years and five lots of chemo , the last cisplatin august 2015 , this is all very promising . I have no appointment until November , a first for me , three clear months !

I do hope this is good news for all of us . The first few months were hard , but after that things were plain sailing until I went into hospital with horrid rash and tummy trouble . I was then taken off the trial having been on it for nine months in total .

Weather in London is sunny , and so am I !

Love to you all xx

Never give up , it's not over till the fat lady sings .

This is very encouraging indeed. Well done and long may stable last. May I ask why do they think your immune system has rebooted? I got a similar result from Avastin finished 2 years ago and still stable. Are you doing anything diferent?

That's amazing. I've just told Hubby he's a bit worried about things. I'm sure immunotherapy is the future of treatment

So pleased for you
