  1. ALK Positive

    Oh my! This is indeed WONDERFUL, Superb, Fantastic, and Celebration Worthy news! I can think of no better words on a post treatment scan result than: "No longer visualized on today's scan!" Take it indeed and .... Stay the course (after due celebration). Tom
  2. Aspiration Pneumonia and Possible Second Primary Cancer

    Maigan, Unfortunately, yes I did have a very disturbing experience with aspiration pneumonia. In my case, my epiglottis, a flap of cartilage that is supposed to depress and seal the trachea when swallowing. Unfortunately, mine was not depressing or sealing and the cause was temporary paralysis from excessive coughing while recovering from a severe episode of pneumonia. I did not have a tumor or lesion in the epiglottis or in my vocal chords but my course of treatment is explained by a blog I wrote sometime ago. Here is the blog. The treatment was unusual because it was vocal chord exercises administered by a Speech Pathologist. I've also read it is rare for NSCLC to spread to the larynx so let us hope the aspiration pneumonia has a cause other than cancer. Stay the course. Tom
