I recently completed the 3rd cycle (of 6 planned) in my clinical trial.
My progress is mixed and recurrent headaches prompted the doctor to order a brain scan.
The scan showed all the squirrels were in their cages but I have several tumors in my skull on the sides and at the base. The tumors have reached a size where they have started to cause mild swelling of the brain.
I am working to schedule appointments with my radiation oncologist to see if the spots can be safely zapped by external radiation.
A piece of good news is that the testing of my cancer genes shows a lack of a certain marker which should make me a candidate for a new class of drugs that is expected to be approved by the FDA by year end.
As always, thanks for the kind messages and prayers!
