After nine months of going through treatment, Bk left amputation, and two re sections in left lung I went to my first three months checkup to be told that now I have multiple nodules in m y lungs. A couple they had detected before but were stable have now grown FROM 3mm to 6mm, and from 4mm to 9mm. The rest are new and have reached 6mm in 3 months. Of course I felt devastated. I thought I had paid my “pound of flesh” for some months of quiet recovery. My doctor is putting me on Votrient, and wait to see if the nodules keeps growing. I have read the posts about Votrient in this forum and would like to know three things that some of you may know.
- Could some you share recent experiences with lung mets treatment?
- How could this happen so fast? Could some of the new nodules be caused by an infection and not be mets?
- Is there an ongoing push to revive the now defunct CMB305 project which seemed to be very effective for SS?
