Just saw my oncologist a few days ago. Not good news.
Lung tumour has grown from 7cm to 11cm.
Cancer spread to ribs and back bone. Pain felt at bones and ribs making it tricky to sleep.
Right leg involuntary spasm. I have to be very careful walking up and down the stairs.
Immunotherapy has obviously failed.
Next Tuesday I'll be starting a new clinical trial as well as a new targeted therapy drug. Hopefully it will curb the spread of the cancer.
This is a major setback. We had such high hopes for the Immunotherapy drug since I was a 95% match for Prembolizumab. It was extremely disappointing. It didn't help that within the last week I found out that my father also has late stage lung cancer (He smoked for 60 years) and my mom's Alzheimer symptoms has gotten way worse. My husband's uncle has also been diagnosed with lung cancer (also a life long smoker). It just seems to be too much to bear in a few days........
