1/25 CT and lung cancer status

Chest/Abdomen CT this morning + visit with my oncologist.  Lungs continue to be stable.  No change in use of the Crizotinib (Xalkori) since it is obviously working.  Dr E has decided that my lung cancer is stable enough to extend the follow up time.  Will now see him every 4 weeks with an Xray on the 4th week and a CT on the 8th week.  He feels that this will be sufficient to monitor for any future tumor growth.

Next news will be Feb 2 when I get an MRI + visit my radiation oncologist regarding the brain lesions.
