Hi all, hope you all as well has can be. Been a tough few months a lot happening at home and me on treatment.


went today for bloods had scans last week was not expecting results today but consultant had a look due to MRI on head was back but body was not. Head still clear tumour in head as now resolved no evidence of tumour., Body was not back but lympth nodes in chest 2 there was enlarged have shrunk. So he was pleased with results. Thyroid increasing dose to 75mg from 50mg. Side effects for me have been musle cramps in ribs and the trips to the loo . 

Been a emotional few months have been feeling down and my mum had a stroke. So if I have not been online much sorry.

There seems to be a lot of new people on line so I would say welcome and you have come to a wounderful place for support. There is lots on board who have great knowledge of this disease and very much needed.

Thank you all for all your support would not know what I would do without you all.


Sorry to hear about your mom. As if life hasn't piled enough on your doorstep already. Ugh. Great news on the brain lesion and shrinking lymph nodes though! 

Hi Scooby - This does sound like you'll have two excellent reports in soon - hope the 2nd is as good as the first and that Keytruda is your "magic pill." All fingers crossed for you!!!! And I hope your mom is recovering!!! Best, always!
