That's what my brother said when he heard the news.
Got the results of my blood labs and CT scan. NED! And I do not have to go back for six months. They used the word remission. I never heard a sweeter sound. When asked about re-staging the
thing my onc said it could be classified as stage 11. And the recurrence was so soon after my initial surgery (in the same spot) they now think it was part of the same problem.
When were they going to tell me all this? I had to pry it out of them. Like pulling teeth to get a positive spin on the outcome.
Now the big countdown begins from my last surgery 8/02. I make that 20 months. I need a colonoscopy soon as it has been over two years since a barium enema before first surgery. Yuck!
I don't want to be that girl from High School who abandons her friends every time she had a new beau only to come crying back when they break up. So even if you don't see me posting I am reading the messages and thinking of you all.
You taught me to ask questions and I needed to learn that.Everyone here seems to have all their numbers and know the terminology. Now I am an expert too.
