    What's the outcome from "mixed results" from chemo?

      Prognosis kind of thing: what % go to further shrinkage and what % just gets worse kind of spread. From what I gather so far, it's not a good thing but it's not a lose hope kind of thing either.

      There's probably no way for us to know your prognosis. As you say, the results are a mixed bag. You can get a second opinion. That's probably a good idea . But, frankly, at this point, if it were me, I would go with the oncologist's evaluation and listen to my body--which sounds pretty happy right now. :-)

      I would ask the oncologist how he plans to monitor those nodules and what he will be looking for to tell him that they are a problem.

      The unfortunate thing about chemo is that you can't compare how you would have fared without chemo. You smaller tumors may have grown slightly, with chemo, but they might have grown a lot without chemo. Different tumors can respond differently to different chemo drugs. So your oncologist sounds like he be planning a different chemo for the growing tumors.
