I often don't post about my scans anymore. They've basically have been the same or go in cycles. My latest one is no different but since it's been a while I thought I'd get "up to date". It's also a time for reflection and to give thanks.
I give thanks to my Oncologist, the surgeons who work with her, her staff, and especially the chemo nurses who aside from being the nicest nurses I've ever had they are also the cutest ones :-)
My CT scan showed that the three "spots" I've had are still stable. One is in/on a lymph node close to my lung(s). An artery runs through it so it's not ablatable. It's been stable for over a year. IF it grows and action is needed it would be treated via Cyber-Knife. I have two other small nodes in my lung(s) that continue to be stable. I am continuing with Erbitux and Irinotecan every other week until I no longer do those treatments.
My CEA is stable at 1.9.
It's basically chronic at this point and that's fine with me.
