Just had PET/CT, brain MRI.  Still all clear.  I am still haning onto the long term follow up study of IL-2 responders paper.  No recurrance after 30 months, no one in the study recurred.  I am now well past that mark.

The next conversation is finding the sweet spot of close monitoring yet reducing my exposure to radiation from all these scans.  I have had at least 9 PET/CT and too many CT scans to count.  I don't want to start another cancer trying to stay free from this one.

My docs will discuss that next seeing as so few of us make it this far.  In a way, it is a nice problem to have :).

Wishing all well.

VATS wedge resection & 23 bags if IL-2 in 2010.  I only had a small lung met and a smaller muscle met in my chest wall.



Cancer Sucks Shit Happens Nothing is ever 100% bad, there is a reason and silver lining in everything. Sometimes I need a good light and my glasses to find it though. You can't fix stupid.

Wonderful news, Kim!  Thanks for posting.
