"Oh Lord my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me." (Psalm 30) Thank you Jesus!
Hello everyone, I finally had my first PET & CT scan after my chemo and radiation for neck cancer. (Undiagnosed Primary) The Pet showed NO increase in glucose, and NOTHING lit up!
The left lymph node has returned to normal, and the right lymph node has shrunk to 0.7 cm!
The neck tissue is soft (no mastisizing sp?)no hardening upon physical examination. I needed to share this wonderful news, to thank you all, since I could not have done it without your support, knowledge, and friendship. Even those who I have not had direct contact with, you must know your posts are crucial to other members. I know my journey has not ended, but I feel a sense of a weight being lifted off my shoulders, if only for the time being. (One day at a time..) God bless all of you, and as always, you are in my prayers. Gratefully yours, Patty

That is great news, Pattyanny!! Here's to continuing success. I know well the feeling as I had the good fortune to have been given similar results in my latest Pet/CT scan.

Patty that is such wonderful news. I am very happy for you. I will have my petscan in six weeks and so I began the long wait. It gives me strength to hear people like you who are cancer free. God bless you and continued good news to you in the future.

Kurt, I know how daunting the countdown can be! Yikes! But I see from your picture, you are surrounded by love, and you will be kept busy (really busy)with the little ones, which is a beautiful distraction. All the more reason to stay strong, and have faith. Thank you and know my prayers are with you. I will be awaiting your update. God bless you and your family!

I think the Psalms say it best 23:4. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me. Thanks you Jesus for bring Patty through the fire. We walk daily through this darkness but we who believe don’t walk alone. Congratulations and may my Lord continue to watch over you.

What can I say Jim? You are another member whose posts I would search to find answers. Thank you for helping me to see the truth of the situation, when the fog of fearful illusion descended upon me. God bless you, and thank you so much for the good wishes! God bless you too! Patty

Hi Stevenl, I am so sorry you have had to begin this roller coaster of a journey :(
Know that you are not alone. You have this fantastic forum of friends and info, but from your post, I see you also have faith. I found faith a very valuable tool, because He was always with me, through the highs and through the lows. My faith is so much stronger now, then when I first started out on this journey, and I have learned a lot about myself.
Stay strong, keep the faith, and let us know how you are doing. God bless you, and heal you!
Thank you! Patty

Yes, it is a milestone! I felt I owed it to you all, to share some good news in a post, for a change, since I have already shared my fears, panic attacks, and tears! Hee Hee! And you are right -It is amazing how our bodies fight this wretched disease! It made me realize how powerful and our minds are (positive thinking)and what an important part they play in the healing process. So stay positive mick and God bless you!

I've been out of town but so glad to hear your news today when I logged on. I'm approaching my second one on 3 February. My first was mostly good news but had a couple of iffffffffffffs???. Now with something to compare to I'm hoping for good news. May all your subsequent scans be clean as well!!!!
