I got my scans after taking 4 treatments of Ipi. All of my mets grew, lungs, brain, along the spine and esphogus, intestine ect. Two new ones, one at where the brain and spine meet and thyroid. I will wait six weeks, get new scans to see if I am a late responder. I still do not have a plan B, there really isn't anything out there that I am eligable for or perks my interest. I meet with my reg Onc on Monday. The next six weeks I plan on working on my pain. My knees and overall back give me pain 24/7. I have a hard time taken opiates, Ibpruphen just takes a little edge off. I told the onc office to order bloodwork for the thyroid to see if it out of wack. I might ask for a fine needle aspiration of the thyroid just to get a biopsy since the last biopsy didn't get a great sample. I plan to use for mutation testing.
I must give kudos to Ft Sanders hospital and Thompson cancer center in Knoxville, TN. I got a bone scan, ct scan and brain MRI within 5 hours and the results the next morning.
