I received the results of my scans today and they are all CLEAR!!! The small Nodules in the lungs ate gone and there is no evidence Of metastatc disease, only the healed rib fractures and the hardware from my fractured clavicle. Now the question is how long ti stay on the votrient. It looks like l will stay on it another full six moaths and do scans after being off of it for three months. anyone had experience with this? I am still in shock from the great news.

Thanks, I will definitely stay on course with the recommendations even though they say nurses can make the worst patients. I always try to prove them wrong and don't mention I am a nurse but itusually comes out. My husband and I are ready to get some motorcycle riding in this next summer.

ivfour,

They tell me there can be some anxious moments on that first ride after a wreck, but it can't be any scarier than hearing "You have cancer". I don't have any memory of my crash due to the concussion I had, in fact the only clear memory I have from that night is being told I had a mass on my left kidney, somehow that got through to me, go figure. On my first ride I actually went back to the site of my accident hoping it would jog my memory, but to no avail, I guess I'll never know for sure what happened. Ride on and...

Keep the rubber side down,

Gary
