Tylalla Posted March 4, 2017 Share Posted March 4, 2017 Here is what went on at my appointment today. The Dr reviewed my CT and it showed that the lung spots and lymph nodes haven't changed. That was the good news. The bad news is that the tumor on the kidney is bigger, the hip bone damage has increased and it appears that the tumor has started eating in to the muscle, which most lo likely explains the severe pain I have been having in my hip and tailbone. The damage to my spine explains the terrible nerve pain I have in my right leg. I'm going to get some palliative radiation done on my hip to hopefully help with the pain.Because the cancer shows progression, I have been taken off the Keytruda immunotherapy. We are now in the process of trying to get me accepted in to a clinical trial. I'm going to have to have another biopsy so more gene testing can be done, and it will be at least a few weeks before I will know if I am accepted or not. If I'm not accepted, there is still a regular chemotherapy drug I can try. I'm going to hope for the trial. I think it gives me more hope and options.Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
