    Hello, all,

    I got my results from my CT. The oncologist reported no evidence of cancer. My lymph node that has enlarged in the past two scans remained the same, but the necrosis appeared to be larger. He said not to worry about it, which I’m going to try not to do. No additional treatment. I have scans again in three months. He thinks the Ipi worked. Blessings to all of you.

    Brilliant news; I had similar results with Ipi which I completed in Jan 2014. Due to have another CT scan in March (last on in Sept was OK, as was one in April). I also had 2 brain mets , treated by gamma Knife in Dec 2013 – 3 monthly regular MRI scans show no new ones. Let us hope we remain lucky – others may get comfort if they see some successes. Of course one cannot be complacent, but I bet you and yours are greatly relieved. Have a little celebration!
