Saw ENT (ear, nose, throat doc) today. He checked ear tubes. Rt was plugged & he removed it. I had been having fluid in the rt ear. He recommended I use "ear planes" (special plugs) when I fly tomorrow to help level out pressure. Hope it works. If no issues, I go back in 6 months.

Saw my radiation oncologist Thursday. He reviewed my latest MRI. Said that all lesions are stable. The lesions in my brain have been stable for 2 years. He did all the usual checks for neurological side effects. Nothing new. I see an ENT next week to evaluate fluid that I have had recently in my right ear.

Despite the horrible weather, managed to get tests and see Dr E this week. Lung CT is stable with a small additional shrinkage. Debb will get back with comp info. No new side effects from the Crizotinib. MRI appears stable; but, I see Dr H later in Feb for interpretation of MRI. Not experiencing neurological side effects. Bloodwork is all normal except for a slight issue with liver function. Will simply monitor for now. Blood pressure is running low (95/52) and has trended down at recent visits. Dr E asked me to cut dosage of BP med and monitor BP regularly. Last couple days in 118/60 range with pulse 46-49. Not experiencing side effects from the BP at this time.
