Well..I finished my eight weeks of the 24/7 chemo....hooray! It feels so good not having my little bag hanging around. I get next week off from any chemo!! I get scans on Monday then the following Monday see what they are going to do next. Maybe try zaltrap chemo. I pray that everyone has a good weekend. Jeff

I couldn't stand that bag the two times I had it for just 24 hours or less, can't imagine 24 hours a day! Enjoy your week and pray you get a great scan! Hip hip hooray!

I dont know how you endured that. I am praying for positive scan results that will make that chemo marathon you completed worth it.

I don't know how you did 8 weeks of the bag. I did five weeks bag before surgery and that was hard. A constant reminder attached to you. Good luck with your scan.

I'm sure that is a big relief not to have to carry that around anymore. Good luck on your scans and enjoy your bag free weekend.

Wow, cannot imagine going that stretch with bag attached. Praying for great scan results for you. I kinda wonder why they didn't give you xeloda.

great that you do not have your companion ( the chemo bag)! i do 4 hrs @ clinic & then take home bag of 46 hrs of 5fu. (but i do this every other week). i can not wait for the home care nurse to come to get this bag off!!! i can not imagine doing it as long as you did. CONGRATS!!! praying for a good scan result!
