Shelley (MLC) Posted April 4, 2007 Share Posted April 4, 2007 Hi everyone....In a couple more months, if all continues to go well with chemo, mom will have a CT and we'll be hoping the Dr. says she's in "remission" and can stop chemo for a time. Can someone tell me what criteria they use for remission? Do the original tumors have to show at least a 50% shrinkage, and perhaps a follow-up scan, a month after chemo show things to be stable? I know they are planning to do monthly Chest X-Rays/CTs after chemo is finished, but how much do the tumors have to shrink for them to consider 1st line to be finished? Am I making any sense at all??? Shelley Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
