All is well with the blood work, vitals and weight. I will closely monitor this 21 day cycle to see how I feel and what problems I note.
I met with Dr. Schraeder and this is what we discussed.
1. We will continue the current treatment and dosage of the Alimta and Avastin every 21 days. If I note an
increase in lousy days he will then consider lowering the Alimta dosage.
2. I was checked for the EML4-ALK genetic mutation just over a year ago. I was negative for the test
which means that I am not a candidate for this new drug. Oh well. Only about 5% of people
tested are ever positive. Pretty tough odds.
3. I will get a MRI brain scan done in the very near future.
