      Hi all,

      We got back from NIH a little earlier today and got good news. Brain MRI and CTSCAN clear. We go back in 3 months, next time a PETSCAN.  NED 20 months from last surgery of small intestine mets.

      Planning on relaxing now and finding some wine or beer to have a little toast.

                    Hi Douglas,

                     

                    In the beginning of 2008 he had IL-2 treatment 6 rounds. He had one of his lung tumors disappear and then a year later April 2009 they surgically removed the other through VATS. It was dead, completely necrotic. Then 3 months later July 2009 he had 3 small intestinal mets show up.  He had those surgically removed. That's been it so far, hope we are done. I will say it's been a really rough for him.

                    I really need to put this in a profile.
