    HI All,

    My husband has been on a MEk/P13k inhibitor study for the past 4 months. Today he had his 4 month CT scan ( protocol is every 2 months) and his doctor just called to say he had seen the scans and everything looks great!

    We won't get official measurements on any reductions until Jan.5th but just knowing that the drugs are still working is amazing. Last time is was 12% reduction and this time we're hoping for more.

    It is so nice to have him close to his old self again, to see him able cut his pain meds in half, and to know that this Christmas we will sleep easy.

     

    Happy Holidays to all.
