    Question: PCI yes or No

    DanielD shared an experience

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (durvalumab): April 4th had first durvalumab infusion. I'll have one year of this, infusion every two week.
    Catscan done 4/2 was done 1 month after end of chemoradiation. Apparently this is too soon for definitive conclusions -- need to wait 3 months.
    But -- the original nodule shows a decrease in size by about 20% and the two lymph nodes that were cancerous now -- cancer is now not detectable on those 2 nodes.
    This is so much more than I hoped for.
    I did have a reaction that I assume was to the Durvalumab treatment. Within about 2 hours of the treatment while driving home I became extremely short of breath. Found it difficult just to walk from car into the house. And mental acuity is awful. Still quite short of breath next morning but seems to have dissipated.
    Would love to hear from others with experience with Durvalumab.

      DanielD. I ,too, am on Imfinzi for a year after completing chemoradiotherapy. They are following the Pacic trial. We are ‘lucky’ to be dealing with this now when such great advances are being uncovered. Warm thoughts going your way on this journey!

      2943........ yes, we're very fortunate. The Pacific trial result was the first significant advance in lung cancer treatment for well over a decade as I understand it.

      Me, too. I am half way thru my year. I take Claritin daily for itching. FATIGUE is my new middle name. Headaches, dizzy come to visit for a few days right after treatment. I call my side effects ‘tolerable’. They are better than chemo. Here is to us winning this one
