I have good news to share.
I had my latest set of CT scans on Monday--chest, abdomen, pelvis.
There is nothing new showing in my abdomen or pelvis, so that's great--the second scan in a row with nothing suspicious (my September scan did show enlarged lymph nodes, including the one in my pelvis that was only resectable during my surgery in February). The pelvic and rectal exam showed nothing developing either.
There is also nothing new -- other than what appears to be some tiny spots related to my recent severe upper respiratory infection -- in my lungs. And, best news of all, the remaining two lung nodules are now almost too small to detect. One is "resolved," according to the radiologist, since it is now only 2mm, down from 5 or 6mm, and the other is unchanged at about 3mm. I had to look this up: 2mm is about the thickness of a U.S. quarter. That's pretty darn small.
My gyn-onc is very pleased. While she can't predict what will come, obviously, having things continue to go in the right direction is exactly what we were hoping to see.
It's now 6 months since I started on the Megace, and almost as long that I have been doing Ayurveda and acupuncture, along with qigong, yoga, Reiki on occasion and meditation/visualization. And a mostly vegan diet, with some supplements familiar to most of us (Vit D, Vit K).
So it's more of the same for me, with even more enthusiasm and confidence in my treatment regime. I am extremely grateful to have such a good network of medical caregivers, since the synergy among the treatments seems to be working so well.
