trish2418 Posted April 30, 2006 Share Posted April 30, 2006 Saw my onc. yesterday and we went over the results of my latest PET/CT. Good news is that although the tumor is still there (shrunk a bit), its "virtually dead". SUV level is normal. No sign of mets. Unfortunately, surgery isn't an option because of location of tumor. Onc. didn't see the point in putting me through another round of Taxotere since the last 2 were just brutal (diarrhea and fatigue). Had an injection of Sandostan to try and minimize the diarrhea and started Tarceva today, will watch for side effects, and will see the onc. again in a month if all goes well. It not the NED I was hoping for, but I'm sure happy with the news I got. Wishing good news for all of you. Trish Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
