@ta52– Good morning. I would be so happy with this news! Are you? I'd be jumping for joy!

Please know that standards are there so that doctors have a guideline for how much medicine would be advisable for you. That recommendation, of course, depends on how well you tolerate it and how it is affecting your cancer.

Since you are tolerating Keytruda/Alimta so well and this cocktail is so good I'd go for it. When was your last CT scan? Any news on whether your cancer is less?

Thanks, Merry. I think the term is "cautiously optimistic". I haven't had a CT/PET Scan since treatment began. My lung cancer had metastasized in my chest and neck lymph nodes. Some of them were visible (which made a biopsy real easy!) and those have all but disappeared. I have my fourth infusion on 12/28 and then a CT the day of infusion #5 on 1/18 so we'll have some indication then. But like Tom Petty said, "the waiting is the hardest part"!
