ADELAIDE, JULY 2014

After 7.5 years of successful treatment to halt the progression of  mesothelioma, my condition has been considered stable with the disease confined to the left lung only.

Around 6 weeks ago, began to have severe pain in my back which inexplicably moved around with treatment so after having no real success, my Doctor suggested I have a CT Scan.  Even my Doctor was amazed at the results of the scan, having had so much success in keeping the mesothelioma stable.

The scan revealed that whilst there was no activity in the areas previously treated in China, there was new activity in three areas in the left lung and now in the right lung.  Wow!

My Oncologist in Adelaide advised that there has been no different treatments available today than there were 7.5 years ago when I was first diagnosed, even more so now that it is in both lungs.  The first thing to do was give me a number of pain killing drugs to give relief from the pain – I need not describe it to my other Meso Warriors!  On Monday next week I start with 2 chemo drugs every 3 weeks.

I am feeling really  confident that the chemo will again stop the progression, then I can look into the China option again.  After my problems with chemo before, I always said I would never have it again, but when your back is against the wall there are no nevers!   I told my oncologist that we have booked a cruise to New Zealand in November – so get cracking with the treatment.

Keep me in your thoughts and prayers – love and light to everyone !

    Hi Loraine, hope this was not mesothelioma spots, but simple inflammation. Did you get AACTL in China? They say it is stronger then DC-CIK.
