Scanxiety was for naught! Scans came back even better than last time. No sign of tumor around my ear, and “infinitesimally” small spots in my lungs. So small, it’s hard to say whether they’re tumor.
According to doc, people who show an immune response like this tend to keep going until the tumor(s) are gone. So no guarantees, but it’s a good sign. In fact, he suggested I might not even need the second round of treatment. But I’m going to get it anyway to be safe. It’s just not something we need to rush. He wants to get me off the prednisone first, so that’s what we’re working on.
And on that note… Happy Thanksgiving!
