Sandy N Posted January 12, 2021 Share Posted January 12, 2021 Found out that the little blips on my adrenal glands are adenocarcinoma (same little stinker that was in my right lung). My lungs are FINE, though, so that's something to be happy about. No genetic stuff found in blood tests with the exception that there was an RET on the RNA (whatever that means). My doc is going to look further into that. However, in the meantime I've started back on treatment. A larger dose of carboplatin, Alimta and Mvasi. I had my first treatment this last Friday and only have 3 more treatments to go (these will be done every 3 weeks). If things are looking OK at the end of the 4 weeks, the carboplatin will go out the door and I'll remain on maintenance for the time being. Since I have "graduated" to stage IV with this (originally diagosed stage IIIA a year ago), I don't know what the maintenance usually consists of. But I do know that the goal is to contain and manage this. Hopefully render things nonreactive (what does that mean?). Regardless, I've been assured that this met is extremely common so it's not like my onc slapped himself upside the head and said "Dang I didn't see that coming!!!" LOL! It's his hope that this is the only met, as it is mine of course. Anyway, not gonna give up, gonna fight the fight and keep up the attitude! I'd sure like to hear from someone who has had an adrenal gland met, if you're out there. Heck, I'd like to hear from anyone on this forum! You're all awesome!
