Yesterday I had my fifth CT scan. The second one, in September 2011, had the worst results: it showed several small lung nodules and several suspicious para-aortal lymph nodes. This was after six months of cisplatin and doxorubicin, and I was floored that the chemo hadn't worked. It was then that I started on Megace--and also on several complementary treatments, including Ayurveda, acupuncture, Reiki, yoga, qi gong, and meditation.
Each one of my quarterly CT scans since last September has shown dramatic improvement. But yesterday produced the best news of all: I now officially have NED! There are NO nodules in my lungs or anywhere else (at least, nothing larger than 1.25 mm, since that's the lowest resolution) and NO suspicious lymph nodes. I'm in remission, and I feel great! (Well, apart from chronic fatigue and night sweats. Not so bad in the scheme of things.)
I credit all of my treatments along with a healthy dose of luck.
It can be done, my sisters. I wish the same good results for each and every one of us.
