7 weeks ago I was told I have radiation pneumonitis. I've been on Prednisone since then. Stopped taking Tagrisso until the pneumonitis is under control. Thursday, I had a CTscan. The inflammation is improving so I am starting to taper the Prednisone....again. Tumor has decreased about 20%, so no progression since I've been off the Tag. I was able to walk 6 miles with my group. I checked my Pulse Ox twice during the walk. It was 97 on level ground and 93 after going up a hill. Definite improvement!

I go back to work (remotely) tomorrow after being off 6 wks.

Back to the oncologist 11/13. Hoping things continue to improve.

I'm impressed...so glad that the pause did not have any negative impact.  Plus, it sounds like you are ready to rock and roll...Stay strong and keep on moving forward.
