here are the results in a nutshell ---
the tumors have stayed essentially the same so i am going on the second drug starting today.
i will do bloodwork on the 17th to see if my liver is maintaining the drugs. if it is, i have my next treatment on the 23rd. if not, i go on steroids and all treatment stops.
once my liver rebounds, i would go back on the treatment i have been on which for some patients has maintained tumors for 2-4 years.
so i am thankful that the tumors have not grown, that is definitely good news.
i would be lying to say that i am not disappointed this treatment hasn't shrunk the tumors, and i am not looking forward to going on the second drug.
but that is where we are so that is what i will do.
thanks for all the love and good thoughts and mojo.
anywhere i fight, you fight.
and we definitely have more fighting to do.
