Topic: Trial Drug is working!
The doctors have been very cautious-- they don't want to be too optimistic. However, the second tumor appears to be shrinking/breaking up. It no longer has definitive borders - just a hazy area. The main tumor is still wrapped around the blood vessels and bile duct-- but it has not grown at all.
You know it's a good sign when the doctor walks in laughing and smiling after talking to the radiologist. We were there at the end of the day, and they needed the report from him before they could issue more of the trial drug. The pharmacy was about to close, so they were trying to get him to read the scans and complete the report--he told my doctor, "whatever you're giving him, keep it up--I can't find the second tumor."
Good times, indeed.
P.S. -- they are still enrolling new candidates for this phase.
