Hello and Merry Christmas to everyone.

My Christmas gift for this year has arrived already. It was a big NED on December the 6th. After a removal of left kidney in 2011 and two Cryoablation treatments on three small masses in my right kidney this year,after a complete CT scan, Dr Henry Krebs at St. Josephs in Atlanta told us there were no signs of any active cancer. Area's that he treated with cryo were dead and shrinking and my next check-up is in six months rather than three months for the first time.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TOO ALL, Doug

Thank you, was sort of a rough year emotionally. But trying to get back to what I hope to be our normal for a long while. I feel sometimes people that haven't been here really realize how hard it is.

I bet the munchkin on your lap provides lots of motivation to be around for many more years.
Way to go, and keep those NEDS coming.

Great news! I'm very happy for you.

As I've said before you were just ahead of me in this crazy process and your posts helped me so much. Well, here we go again, I have my 2nd round of scans next week. I'm looking for a NED too.
