Life is a Roller Coaster
Ray had a phone call from the hospital to make an appointment after his scan result is showing something is going on in is Lymph Gland. Why that would give him a lump in his groin we do not know so all will be revealed on the 17th.
We do of course suspect the big C . We are positive people so we try to put the bad thoughts to the back of our mind but we will meet any challenges head on.
Getting old is such a pain (excuse the pun)
Well yesterday was treatment day at the Royal Marsden for me. I had a scan on Monday so we set of very troubled at what my results would be.
The traffic was very heavy as we travelled all the motorways but we did get there on time.
Bloods were done after a fight to find my veins. This is getting harder after so many times the poor veins have been abused with needles through the years.
We sat and waited for the Doctor to call me in.
He said everyone was delighted when they had looked at my scan in the meeting.
14% shrinkage on only 4 infusions. I have responded so well on a rechallenge of MK3475-28 (Pembro)
Ray sat there shocked and his hand over his mouth.
From then on everyone came up to me and gave me a hug as they said we have heard the great news. Im the first meso Patient to achieve this great news.
A nurse came and saw me, she is one I meet often at conferences and she was so pleased. I said I would love to be brave enough to leave my body to research but she said Mavis you are doing so much while you are alive concentrate on that. There is a chance they do another bi-op so they can really see what is going on a rechallenge That is Ok by me I said.
I want to know so many answers to the question What is it in my body that is allowing this great result so it can really help other Mesowarriors ??
So Infusion 5 is in and travelling around my veins now The story continues.
I have emailed the great result to Doctors that were waiting to hear, and received lovely answers back it was a great day yesterday.
Im surviving through this terrible disease.
