@2onlow8– Oh those are words none of us want to hear, "no further treatment suggestions". Do you think that you will seek more opinions?

@2onlow8–- Good morning. I am checking in to see how you are doing and if you have made any decisions about treatments given your last post!

I have a 2nd opinion oncologist at MD Anderson, Jacksonville, who has been very supportive of me and my local oncologist's suggestions over the past 2 years of my treatments. I'm awaiting results of a PT scan I had on Friday and he will also get those scan results so I'm sure we'll have a conversation this week.

Very happy to report that last week’s PT scan showed remarkable improvements to my lungs after 3.5 months of Xalkori! But I am still very short of breath due to fluid build up and damage to my lungs. Thoracentisis being scheduled. So far so very very good 😷.
