I had my 9-month post treatment checkup at Stanford yesterday, and there was no evidence of disease. Yay! Granted, all they did was scope ('gack'), palpate the base of my tongue ('gag gag gag gag gag') and squeeze my throat till I got a little blue in the face ('wheeze') but it was still happy news.

I finished cisplatin and eight weeks of radiation in May 2010 for HPV+ Stage 4 BOT SCC, with mets to lymph nodes on both sides of my neck. I had a PET-CT at the three month mark back in August, which showed NED then. At this point, my Stanford doc is recommending no PET-CT till the end of this year, which would make it roughly one year out from my August PET-CT. If he's okay with that, I'm okay with that. I'll be dancing even harder if that one comes back clean.

Heal on! To those of you in the early stages of this fight; keep on fighting!

okay,

I'll beee quiet about it NOT...HooRay for You and NED. I don't think your husband will mind if you are seeing NED. Outstanding news to say the least. I have happy feet for you, doing a little Irish Dance here : ), well, maybe looks more like a bear dancing.

My Best to You and Everyone Here

Your PET/CT interval is really telling of what your doctor thinks. I'm 18 months post and still go every 4 months. They obviously like what they see and you should be out riding today.

Your secret is safe with us...but you need to keep the yelling and screaming down, LOL....

Congrats, on a job well done...one year is about right for the PET scans. I even had a few CT scans thrown in during my first year...

Best,
John

I know how you feel. NED lifts that 100 lb weight off your shoulders. He's pretty strong !
all the best, Steve
