Saturn_Bound Posted March 18, 2021 Share Posted March 18, 2021 Not good news from my moms latest PET scan: Progression of disease as evidenced by multiple new FDG avid lymph nodes within the neck and chest, as well as increased in size and activity in previous lymph nodes of the neck and abdomen. Increase in size of FDG avid right lower lobe pulmonary mass and increased activity along the right pleura, diaphragm abutting the right hepatic capsule . New bilateral FDG avid consolidations concerning for metastatic disease versus inflammatory process, recommend clinical correlation and follow-up. I had really high hopes Keytruda would work for at least a year since my mom has a PDL1 of 80%. The pain of seeing this outcome after only 4 months is gut wrenching. I don’t know where to run and just want to dig a hole up in the earth and stay there. She was supposed to get her next infusion on Monday, but I guess we will see what the onc says. No mutations for her Adenocarcinoma so not sure what options are left. TJM, LouT and Tom Galli 1 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
