Leslie Posted August 19, 2007 Share Posted August 19, 2007 Hi all-- Just wanted to let everyone know we got the results of the PET scan on Wednesday and while there has been some shrinkage of the primary lung tumor and lymph nodes, 2 new mets were discovered (on the spine and hip) and there is a small liver met. Additionally, it looks like some new lymph nodes involved. My dad is out of the clinical study and off the Carboplatin/Gemzar/Avastin...he is now on Zometa and it looks like we will be moving on to Alimta, possibly with Avastin. I am grateful that it wasn't all progression--but it's hard to not feel a little disappointed and sad...I am fighting hard to stay strong. After a day of feeling sad, my dad is much stronger and ready to get back in the fight. So, if he is strong, then so am I. Praying that Avastin gets approved by insurance!
