After surgery, the patient received 11 more cycles of the same drug regimen. Serial follow-up included CT scans of the thorax and abdomen together with bone scintigraphy every 3 months. CT and bone scans remained clear until 20 months after the primary diagnosis, when a CT scan of the chest showed two nodules, 5 mm in diameter, in the posterior basal segment of the left lung and lateral basal segment of the right consistent with metastatic tumor.
