A little bummed!!
Hey Guys, I am struggling a bit this morning because even though my ct scans were considered stable my oncologist at Seattle Cancer Alliance told me today that he was hoping for all or most of the nodules to be gone if IL2 had worked. He also recommemded I start Sutent which I really do not want to do but he did say that since there has been little growth I could wait and scan in 3 or 6 months! I am not sure what to do as I am scared of the side effects of sutent. Any advice?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
