Said November 12th, your Dad is Stage IV. They said, your Dad has the largest mass we've ever seen. They said, he can't have surgery. They said we can try chemo/rads but we're not confident for remission. They said 6-12 months. We said, holy ****!!! Sunday marks 9 months. My Dad now says, PET shows no cancer activity, two endo's show no cancer activity, two biopsies show no cancer yet. I say, I am so thankful to still be able to call ol boy whenever I want and hear his voice. We both know that EC will return, and we now talk frankly about life and enjoying things a little bit more. I hope I get the 3-5 the onco has told us is possible! His goal is to get a social security check! Hahahahaha

I am so glad to hear that your Dad is doing well. I guess this goes to demonstrate once again that we are all a statistic of "one" and no-one knows how much time we really have. I hope your Dad continues to beat the oncologists expectations!!!

I concur with him completely! I send my well wishes to your dad for continued good reports. Each day is a blessing, and I'm so glad you have them. Enjoy!

Congrats on the great outcome.
My suggestion is to not put it out in the universe that you want the cancer to come back.

Did your Dad do anything special to "help" the Chemo and Radiation?
