Well we had an interesting event take place during this past three month period. About a month ago my wife had a cough that would not go away. She then started having shortness of breath and an elevated heart rate. Her doctor had her go to the ER at MD Anderson. After a four day stay in the hospital they sent her home with oxygen and steroids. As of the time of this writing she has completed her steroids and uses the oxygen rarely. They never did get to the bottom of the illness, they think possibly COPD or asthma.
Now as far as her scans. They did two of the three scans while she was in the hospital. The following scan was completed a week later as usual. All three scans were in fact clean, no changes.
Before her next appointment she will have a bone scan. They are a little concerned about her elevated heart rate as it is regularly 120-130 with little exertion.
She remains on Keytruda and has been on it 28 months since her cancer returned as Stage 4 in November 0f 2020. She had her RC January of 2020.
Her main side effect is still soreness/fatigue. NOTE: She felt great while on steroids.
She still gets around fine and is self sufficient. In fact she has recently started driving again. Her first trip was to the grocery this week.
Her next milestone will be Easter.
Every day is a great day. Will report back in three months, hopefully nothing worth reporting until then.
