Yesterday afternoon, I heard from my medical oncologist about that morning's CT scan. Their comments were:
"Similar findings from the last CT, the liver and peritoneal lesion are improved or stable, the lungs are a bit larger. Nothing new that I can tell. We can continue on with therapy, and can discuss more in person."


Some of the tumors in the lungs are actually a bit smaller, if I'm reading the CT report correctly. Everything else is stable or shrinking.

What I take away from this is overall continued mild improvement. This is significant because lately my tolerance for Regorafenib has also improved. We were concerned that might mean that drug effectiveness was reducing. Apparently not, at least at this time. We will be discussing with the oncologist today.

I am so profoundly relieved. Lisa Costello is profoundly relieved. [info]the_child, her mother, my parents, my siblings, my friends, everyone is profoundly relieved.

Two more months of life. For all that they are life-giving, these increments are deadly to my morale.
