Hi all

Hope you are all doing well tonight. Quick question. I was diagnosed with bone mets in February... started Abraxane and Tecentriq mar 4th. Had my 3 month scan and my oncologist said scan was ok. Cpl spots have grown a little bit but he said we see this w this drug. When the cells attach to cancer cells, this makes tumour look bit bigger. But he said Then second 3 mos scan should see no change or some shrinking even. Anyone else heard this? Just want to be sure. There is some info on google. They called it pseudo progressio

I hope you are feeling a bit better with your bone pain. I too, have mets in my back and sternum. After two months of receiving this treatment I wasnt feeling any better, I had pain and I was tired. I had progression in bones and treatment has been stopped. Radiation and medicial oncologist agreed. I dont know if that is helpful.
