To update any newcomers, I am a Stage 3 survivor who began Folfox 4 in November and finished it about four weeks ago.
My Pet and CT scans were all clear and for that I'm so grateful. My oncologist told me that I would repeat both tests in three months, and then I could have my Gronshong catheter removed.
I still get frustrated with my body when it feels tired and my mind and heart do not. I guess it takes a little time for the body to bounce back from chemo. Because of my overall good health, my doctor gave me pretty big dose of oxaliplatin (140 mg.). When I asked him about chemo maintenance, he said I had all the chemo I could have for awhile.
Anyway, I feel great and am looking forward to a long and healthy future!
Love and hugs,
