Quick anti-EGFR Update: Hitting the Sweet Spot

Just a quick update on my anti-EGFR Therapy…

I just got back from my Oncologist  appt.  He was downright giddy happy/excited to see the scope of my EGFR rash! 🙂

Oncology drug side effects are graded on a scale of 1-4 (well, technically a scale of 1-5 but 5 equals ….. let’s not go there.)

My rash is officially “Grade 2” which is EXACTLY the “sweet spot” I wanted to be in – more (statistical!) anti-tumor efficacy than no rash or only a Grade 1 rash but not potentially miserable/risking dose reduction like what happens with Grade 3/4 rashes.

My rash is perfect 🙂  I guess you don’t hear that phrase very often… have I mentioned what a wild and unique world it is to be a cancer patient?

It’s a good day. 🙂
