Thank you to those who have wished me luck and prayers. I had both chest and pelvic scans a few weeks ago, then between holiday, family, and internet problems, have barely been on line for a while. Although the words NED were not there I am satisfied with "stable". They are watching a small cyst on my liver, and a nodule above the kidney. They claim to have some expected limitations in measuring the perianal area due to residual soft tissue, but in comparison good with no metastatic disease identified in the abdomen or pelvis. My onc said he would have written NED, so feel pretty good, just worried they can't get a really good pic. In a few months if I show a bit more improvement on the inflamation, he suggested I may want to see a specialist about the colostomy reversal, yet my general surgeon still advises against it. I have not decided yet and will get one more opinion. My mother died 7yrs ago from ovarion cancer, so with my history of breast cancer now they are doing genetic testing for a faulty Brac gene. If that is the case I will have a hysterectomy. That will have to be done by a specialist in Milwaukee because my pelvic organs are fused together from radiation and a little more complicated. I am told a hysterectomy done roboticly has a much quicker recovery time though. So, to wind up, still waiting on a future plan, but mostly feeling well,( some of the BC meds have lousy side effects, but all doable.) Hope you are all enjoying the summer, I am not a winter person and live in Wisconsin, so loving the heat!! As always, all in my prayers.
