I'm good for another 6 months...yeah! Have a checkup with oncologist every 6 months and we generally follow the CA125 marker, as fairly reliable for me. Been 2 years since my last CT scan, doc thought lets do one since I've got a small cyst on my liver (non suspecious), but like to watch for any size changes. All is fine, although my CA125 went up from 5 to 11 and CT was all great except some minor non-suspicious hazing on right lung. This will be watched but doc felt since I've been sick with cold and stomach upset, any inflammation can cause the inflated marker plus spot on lung being inflammed.
Started my journey in Jan. 09. diagnosed 3C MMMT, cancer found in 1 lymph node; completed treatments (6 carbo/taxol), 33 sessions of pelvic external radiation. Thankfully NED every since the start of this journey!! I've learned to keep my immune system strong with new ways of eating with all natural/organic fruits-veggies, all grass-fed/organic meats and dairy, daily exercise & yoga, simply taking time to enjoy each and every day....plus lots of prayers. No golden rule for keeping this cancer away, but feel best when I keep my body strong.
Thanks to all my CSN sisters who've been my rock...always here for me and continually giving me support!!
