What incredible news that is. I am so happy for you. Makes me a little hopeful, as I have limited sclc, as well. I don't have my scans until Nov. 27th, but am already having some problems that are worrisome. I keep praying that I'm just panicking in the moment of unknowing. I do know some of what I'm feeling is definitely just high anxiety, though. I am just so glad for you and your husband right now. Thank you for sharing.
Hi David and Daniel. So glad to meet you both in such unfortunate circumstances. I've only been here since July on my limited disease, small cell lung cancer journey. I don't write much, but the responses are quick and caring when I do. I hope you can both find some comfort here.
Thank you for the comment, David. I'm so sorry you're dealing with the same, but I am glad your pain appears to be tolerable at the moment. I know my dad started just alternating between Ibuprofen and Aspirin, but he then went to Vicodin and I believe now is using Hydrocodone. He still uses it very sparingly, though.
I'm glad the shot is working well for you - my dad is also receiving Zometa infusions to stimulate bone growth, but I don't think he has noticed any difference. The bone mets are pretty painful for him.
He had his most recent scans on Monday (yesterday), so we'll find out tomorrow as he goes in for his infusion how things are going. Here's hoping we see more shrinking tumors, or at least that things are stable!
I'll be thinking of you and following your progress, David.
