    HI all,

    My husband had a PET scan this morning as it's day 28 of the study he is participating in.

    http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01155453

    We just heard that all the previously existing lesions and tumours have up to 50% SUV reduction. The doctors are thrilled and so are we.

    CT scan on Nov. 3rd will hopefully show shrinkage, but we know it's working. He's reduced his pain meds and is in no pain.

    woohoo!

    Finally something is going in the right direction. :-)
