Happy to share that my second round of surveillance testing shows no evidence of disease, no nodules (new or old), no densities (new or old) and no other findings requiring particular short term monitoring. I am now 6 months NED. This result was particularly good news as in mid May, I experienced a period of extreme fatigue, headaches, balance issues and nausea. I was literally fine one day and in a very bad way a day later. I was given a full round of tests and scans ( including check for pulmonary embolisms) and IV infusion of nausea medications. Consensus was pneumonitis and general inflammation. With the help of prednisone , a lot of sleep and time to heal, this situation resolved over a 4 week period and I have now had the best set of scans since my diagnosis. I’m back to my full gym/exercise regimen and went to a family reunion in Canada (1st time my family (siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews) has seen me since my diagnosis. Now I’m looking forward to a trip to Disney with my family and a chance to get back to living a bit more. For reference I was diagnosed with Limited Stage SCLC 10/31, 2017 and achieved NED in late January 2018 following Chemoradiotherapy.
