I had been anxious for 6 days waiting for the results of my scans til yesterday. Since my onc is out on vacation, his assist dr., Lisa who works closely with me talked with him before he left. Finally yesterday, Lisa immediately told me that all of my cancer is gone. I am dumbfounded and speechless.
John wants me to show the info: On the report, Neck, abdomen and pelvis - there has been "interval resolution of the hypermetabolic mediastinal and axillary lymph nodes". "Skeleton: there is diffuse marrow activity consistent with the history of recent Neupogen (I had that shot the previous day with 480 mg.) However, there is decreased activity in the region of the previous abnormal uptake in the bilateral sacrum and left posterior ileum. "Diffuse marrow activity due to marrow stimulation. Decreased activity in the sacrum and left posterior ileum is in the region of previously noted abnormal activity, suggesting marrow replacement." IMPRESSION:INTERVAL RESULTION OF A HYPERMETABLOIC ADENOPATHY (DR. WROTE "Good news! Resolution needs 6 cycles"
Oh, shoot, I forgot to ask about the spinal treatment (see Vinny's post) but will see dr. next Tues. and ask him about that. Anyway, right after this meeting, I walked to the infusion center to receive my 9th chemo and still 3 more to go - my last one set on Jan 25th - yes, also for Sue's scan and John's birthday so this shall be a blessed day for all of us! Well, I am a lot happier but feel like still have to run a longer marathon with this - now feeling pains in my tummy sipping tea but think I can eat oatmeal... I can see flicker of light at end of tunnel now... BIG THANK YOU for your moral support and sharing!!!
