I am new to the board but not to colon cancer. I was diagnosed in Nov. 2011 with stage IV colon cancer. I have read the postings and the supportive responses for a month and would l would love to be a part of this wonderful, caring community. I had a pet scan and cea blood test yesterday and am waiting for results...the waiting never gets easier!!!! Should get results tomorrow. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and I am always willing and ready to listen. ~Ann.
Thank you for the welcome...it really means a lot to me....
Pet scan results came back last week and actually saw the scan on the computer on Wednesday at the radiologists office, where he could explain the details. Both good and bad news but now I have a tentative plan. Good news is that my liver is clear after having SIRT done in November and December. One lung met lit up very bright, while 3 smaller ones did not. A new spot on abdominal wall lit up and something vague on my neck, which I had a ct done Wednesday. Get measured for external radiation on Monday for the lung, can't ablate because it is on a blood vessel. Five rounds of radiation every other day and then we will radiate the abdominal wall. I will know about the neck when the ct scan comes back. Meanwhile I will continue xeloda ( finished third round today). Thanks for listening......~ Ann
