I had my first three month check up Monday (CT and PET scan) and am still all clear (CEA less than 0.5). Little history, Stage 4 last February with 2 mets to the liver, 7 months of chemo, RFA to ablate the final met in October, no chemo since October. I feel bad posting when others aren't doing as well, but I thought maybe I could be of help by giving hope to others. Don't always believe the doctors, they had all but given up on me last February. BTW- Looking forward to Vegas. Mike

Hey Mike...Congratulations on your good news!!! Don't feel bad about posting that, let's all celebrate together! My wife is stage 4, diagnosed last October, just finished radiation, starting chemo on Feb 28th. (Geez, I can't believe it's already been over three months since her surgery.) We've also been subjected to the gloom & doom of some doctors, but we're fighting the determined fight with doctors now who are positive and forward looking. Anyway, your good news gives realistic hope to the rest of us, regardless of our current situation.

Thanks for your good news!
