Hi Everyone,

I have now been stage IV for almost three years (Sep. 2011).  I have read many posts here that have helped  me through some tough times, hopefully my news will help some of you.

I started PD-1 (nivo) in December.  I just had my final scans and, thankfully, I responded.  The target met (right lung) shrunk from 4.6 sq. cm to 0.42 sq. cm (90%) and the smaller met (left lung) is gone.  

Furthermore, today I had my brain MRI and my brain is clear. I had craniotomy #2 one year ago today (June 25) and my brain has been clear since.  

Good luck to you.


I also posted this on MIF.
