Things are looking...good? It's all relative, right? The cancer is really only growing in the right kidney area. There are multiple tumors there, and they are actually smaller than they were when we started PD-1, but they are invading the pole of the kidney. So we need to take some action. This is the spot they radiated in January of this year and the place that was causing pain when I started the PD-1 in May.
We have a date to start IPI again, November 13th. The doctor will take my case to the tumor board on Thursday and see if the surgeons think it's operable. But most likely we are going to see if that miracle IPI will work it's magic again.
Josh and I think this is a great plan. We wish I didn't have cancer at all, but I have a ton less of it after this last surgery, and the PD-1 seems to have kept things in other places pretty stable. We are feeling really very lucky.
