lilgna Posted May 31, 2005 Share Posted May 31, 2005 Well the results of my CT scan were a little disappointing... After reading others Alimta results, I am more concerned than ever. It appears I have had a slight improvement in a few areas, lymph nodes, but the nodule has slightly increased, as well as some other areas (lymph nodes.) No mets anywhere, else, had bone scans and brain as well as full Ct scans, Thank God for no mets.... But Dr. told me I would not be a candiate for Tarceva, because my disease was large, I never thought it was Its a few lymph nodes with no Mets, that must be good, I thought, but I was wrong I guess. Dr wants me to research clinical trial just in case the Alimta does not work, that was un-nerving, will keep me on it throughout, unless I have a large progression. I was very slow to respond to Carbo/taxol first round, but when I did I was in a stable mode for over 18 mths. Maybe thats whats happening now? I expected better results, and I am very disappointed, and slightly afraid, second progressions can be difficult to stop. HELP anyone else have similar results, everyone seems to have so much shrinkage and improvement. I do feel better Dr said that is worth someting to the reports... your reponses will be so appreciated.. gina Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
