Kycindylou Posted July 2, 2020 Share Posted July 2, 2020 My husband had an original diagnosis of nsclc in March 2019,, then they realized there was an error and the biopsy needed to be sent to Mayo for a 2nd opinon, it came back both nsclc and sclc. Fast forward to after 4 different chemotherapies, progression to brain, so they did whole brain radiation and gamma knife on 6 lesions, it has remained stable, they put him on Imfinzi and he progressed to adrenal gland, which they removed, it was all small cell. He was then put on Opdivo/Yervoy for 4 cycles and made it fine until the 4th. His immunotherapy attacked his eyes and intestines and currently he is on 120 mg of prednisone to try and stop that. Just giving you a little history. My question is this, his scans from last week came back with several small lesions in his lung. The Dr said maybe pseudo progression? I understand what that means but have never heard of that with sclc at all. Have any of you? Just hoping for your thoughts on this. His brain and abdomen are still stable on these recent scans. The lung had remained stable until this go round of scans, they said they won't know for certain until they scan again in 6 weeks. He can't continue with the Opdivo infusions until his steroids are tapered down to 40 mg a day so for now here we are just wondering if anyone else with sclc has experienced pseudo progression.
