IrisI Posted April 1, 2022 Share Posted April 1, 2022 I met with my oncologist yesterday. I was so nervous my stomach was sick. We went over the results of my PET scan. The cancer is in my right lung and the lymph nodes in my neck (which we already knew). It has not spread anywhere else in my body. My PDL-1 did not qualify me for immunotherapy, which is what I was hoping for. However, the doc says "I have some good news! Your mutation marker came back with EGFR, which is what I was hoping for. You are a candidate for targeted therapy." I am so excited! I have read (and been told) that targeted therapy is working extremely well for people. It will take two weeks to process my prescription, and I will start taking my pills around that time. I still have no symptoms (thankfully). So excited to get treatment started! I am ready to beat this thing! I slept like a baby last night. walfredo2001, ChiMama, catlady91 and 4 others 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
