Your post makes me feel very hopeful Dick. I am on Zelboraf as well and just got my latest PET yesterday and still NED. I will be one year on these drugs in June. If I'm still clear after a year, I will feel much better about my chances. Also, hearing about side effects diminishing is very exciting. Currently, I'm dealing with horrendous itching and lower extremity swelling, but the rest of the side effects (except the sun, of course) have seemed to be taking a break if not gone for good (fingers crossed). Thanks for the post.

I wonder how some of you are still doing since we initially posted this? We are here to support you so please keep us up to date. One thing I notice overwhelmingly is how you all know what is important in life and disregard those petty things many people complain about in life. That is the one gift this disease gives you, a new perspective!
