GGO and FDG uptake

Hi everyone, I'm new here and I'm grateful to have found this site.I created a post a few minutes ago but I can't find it! I hope I'm not duplicating this. I was diagnosed stage 1A add no carcinoma in August 2020. I had my upper left lobe removed via VATs surgery. My tumor was 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.1 cm, adenocarcinoma, lepidic predominant with focal papillary feature.  Grade 1-2, well to moderately differentiated. At the time of diagnosis, a PET scan showed a maximum SUV of 24.2 (which I believe is extremely high).

Malignant Pleural Effusion

Hi all, I’m hoping someone can help here

I was diagnosed with stage 4 in 2018 due to a malignant pleural effusion and have been on Tagrisso ever since due to EGFR mutation. I am still on that but am trying to think ahead for when I do progress..hopefully not for a long while though.

From pretty much day 1 my consultant has warned that it is very unlikely that I will be eligible for any clinical trials due to not having a measurable tumour as the MPE is (all!) I have, no solid tumour has been seen.

Now does that mean;

Covid vaccine efficacy

Hi.  I have stage 4 NSCLC, been on Tagrisso for over a year.  I’m 72 and very healthy otherwise.  I’m fully vaccinated, but nobody - including my doctor - can tell me how well the Covid vaccine is likely to work for someone in my situation.  Where I live,  there is talk of booster shots for people on chemo, but not TKIs.  The antibody tests available are only to see if you have had Covid, not how well  the vaccine is working.  Any thoughts?  Thank you!
