My Husband: DAvid, Dx in dec 2011 with stage 4 adenoca, ALK +, with 27mm lesion and pleural effusion.
treated with 4 cycles CArboplat/Alimta/Avastin with some shrinkage.
Another year of maintenance with Alimta/Avastin, with continued shrinkage
Today's scan : "scarring at site of previous spiculated mass. No current evidence of neoplasia."
Apart from praising God for a miracle, what are the implications?
Do we continue maintenance therapy?
or just Alimta?
or just Avastin?
if so for how long?
how often would you get scans done
If/when reoccurence would we need to rebiopsy?
