Just got back from the Med. Onc. My scans from last week were clean. I am about 14 months from diagnosis (NPC) and 10 months from the end of radiation. During the first Chemo treatments (about a year ago), I developed bilateral pulmanary embolisms and after a brief hospital stay I have since been on Coumadin. The doc told me I could stop taking that too. Not only for the port removal but for good.
So a good visit...Ned, one less drug to take, and the dang port is comming out.
Thank you again, everyone here. Y'all have been a calming influence and massivly helpful during this trial.
Oh, and I go on my first vacation since diag., next week. Phoenix for spring training baseball, and staying at a hotel/casino. My two passions, Baseball and Blackjack, on one trip. Yippeeeee!
