    I'm back, at least for a while

    Hi Folks,
    Update…
    Not good news for the home team, got sent home from Dukewith a ‘there is nothing more we can do for you’. My cancer has metastasizedand has spread to some nymph nodes. I found a new oncologist and she has mestarted on one of these new immunotherapies. It’s a long shot, I have a 14-15%chance of living longer than 6-12 months. But no worries, feeling great right now andliving every day to its fullest. Still on dialysis and that sucks. Three days aweek for 5 hours at a time hooked to a machine that keeps me alive; after eachsession you basically feel hungover for about 24 hours. I had some customdialysis t-shirts made up...


    I'll try to knock the rust off and signed up for TWDT

    Update, had my 90 day CT scan this week and got the results...oncologist said "NDF" (No Disease Found). There is not much data on what happens if you stop the immunotherapy, so the
    oncologist is recommending that I stay on it for another year. (Hey, what's another $750,000?) And of course my wife is pissed, she is now planning alternative methods for my demise so she can collect the life insurance money. And given the status of TW... has anyone looked into getting TW on immunotherapy?
