I'm praying NED come November ?

First and foremost thanks for all the prayers ! I am soooo relieved I switched clinics and now have an onc, that knows and works with my dx. He won't say for positive until my next PET in November but is leaning towards no evidence of disease. My dx will return eventually, (no clear margins, and perineural invasion) and he assurred me that he would attack it aggressively. And yes they have used rads and chemo to treat this dx. So saying this I am more apt to relax and let the man take the wheel for awhile, cuz I'm tired of the long road trip ! Also I have to see a GI specialist for the other issue. Doesn't think these are related but wants to make sure no issues with GI tract. So for today...yeah guys and gals life seems pretty darn good ! And if and when I need your guidence thru more treatments...I feel confident I'll be in the right spot ! You are the tops ! Katie

Yeah way down the road if my luck holds out ! This dx will return in my case, not everyones. But it is thanking the heavens a slow growing one. Thanks Rick ! Katie

John,
Thank you, I've got fingers and toes crossed on this one. I am just so relieved...maybe can do some fishing with calming thoughts surrounding me to catch a walleye or two ! Katie

ratface,
In Minnesota this means deer season opener. I use to hunt for food, but no more. Now I hunt with my camera...life is pretty special and precious. I will be hunting and bagging NED though....with God's help ! Thanks, Katie

Tim,
I too am praying for a permanent NED for us all. I give it completely over to the higher power. Not saying I won't continue to be proactive in my dx....try to stop me ! I will bask in my happy spot, and enjoy every second of it ! Katie

I'm so glad you got some good news. It's such a relief to find a Dr who is educated about ACC! I'm pretty sure my ENT knows more about it than my onco but that's fine with me as long as they work together! I'll be praying for a clean scan in November!

Meagan,
Acc...who'd a thought in a million yrs hunh ? Guessing this is so very true with all dx's. Stay proactive girl, and always question things you don't understand. Will be praying NED for both of us come Nov. ! Thinking of you ! Katie

Well, November will be obviously an interesting month :).

I wish that it's going to be the best month for all of us, for you Katie, Phrannie and everyone else who will be scoped. I pray to that really badly!

My dad is having his last rad today.. He feels like crap, his neck is burned pretty bad, he can barely swallow... But, let us all hope it is worth it.. for NED in the future.

Katie, my prayers are with you!!
