Well, had my scan today and my Onc went all out.  CT of the neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis.  Now I have 24 hours to make it though.  Man I wish I lived in medical marijuana land. :)

Hi Joe,

Positive thoughts and prayer coming your way for a clean report! I checked up on the states that have MM and mine is not one of them unfortunately. In situations like that one has to improvise ;)~

Joe,

 

I asked and was told yes.  My wife said no.  I was just having fun (I love brownies).

 

Good luck on the scan.

Hey Joe!

Hope your well and you find nothing on these scans! My first scan won't be untill the end of April and I will have MRI of head and neck and CT of chest. I feel very good but my fingernails are very short in anticipation of scans.

This is me and my son last year at the Tigers game. We watched the Rockies get their rear ends handed to them. Looking forward to a great summer.

good to tell you to relax...that's it's going to be good.....I know precisely how impossible that is to do.  So I'll skip telling you to relax, and just jump ahead and tell you that you're going to be NED....yes, yes, yes you are.

Best of luck tomorrow. They always make me wait 2 weeks for the results and after the first 2 scans 2 weeks seemed like 2 years. After my 3rd PET Scan my surgeon did say I could have called a day or two after the scan and they would give me the results but I've gotten use to the suspense

If you rolled one now you may still be on cloud 9 tomorrow for the results.

Thoughts and Prayers

Joe,

The only thing better than hearing your cancer free the first, is hearing it again!
You will be NED I feel it! Get ready to celebrate again!

God Bless,

Rachel

Thanks for all the good wishes.... hydrocodone bottle starting to look pretty good about now even though my throat decided not to really hurt today (that's a first).  Tomorrow Tuesday at 11:15 I'll know more.

Gone, nada, none.

Bit of a concern with fluid in the lung from aspirating but I can deal with that.

Another six weeks and then a PET.

Thanks everyone for the support.

Glad for NED, it must be incredibly rewarding and relieving to know all that the treatment regimens do to your body and mind were worth fighting these battles. You have demonstrated courage under fire and I admire your inner strength. The most intense part of the war is over yet there are still live mines and other sources of potential collateral damage. Stay alert and focused and you will march off the battlefield in one piece. God be with you Joe. don

Congrats on the NED. I would probably get used to the aspirating, especially if your ENT removed allot of tissue in the back of your throat. I just had a CT last Friday and Radiologist and Onco agree on my spots that showed up resemble aspiration.

I hope to see a photo of you and your son at a game this year. Make it a Tiger Cardinal game.

Best

Mike

Isn't that one of the best feelings you ever had? I brought alot of work home with me tonight but I had to take a minute to check for your good news.  I will always remember the first time I was told that the cancer was gone. My wife and I left HUP and went to the parking garage, I went to call my son who lives in Florida and I lost it. The best cry I ever had. Matter of fact I can feel  it building now just thinking about it. Life is good.

 

Enjoy the day..................I do..................every one of them

Joe,

Congrats on the NED! May you enjoy NED for many years to come!

I think it's great that your center does an early CT... we have to wait out the 3 months, but just one to go before the PET.

So glad your worry was for naught!

Should be getting my MJ card next couple days. Went through the hospital rather than the "commercial" MJ doctors. Why not save myself a hundred bucks? There are several boxes that I can clearly check hard as valid justification and it is far easier when you have hard procedures you just pull from the state and county health web sites. States that have not moved this direction are really backwards in the 21st century.

My OWN view on this topic. In our very difficult treatment regimens, doctors and patients freely give and accept really hard and dangerrous drugs just because they are prescribed and hide behind the big pharma companies that push and peddle drugs "legally". So you start on Vikoden, graduate to Oxycodoe, then onto morphine, then join the big league of fentanyl patch land, starting and increasing the micrograins as needed/desired to manage the pain. Levels so great that if you take too hot or long a shower or bath you OD. Now that makes sense. Then the good doctor starts weaning you off the heavy drugs to manage your withdrawl symtoms, no different than a street heroin addict; yet, we cast dispursions about the street druggie while some afford to hid behind the clean medical shield doing far worse.

Where is the logic NOT to add MJ to the legal list? I wonder who in this capitalistic society would suffer with such a drug added to the officaial list of medications that can be dispensed by the medical community? humm....

Awesome news Joe!  Thanks for sharing the update.  Keep 'em coming!

 

LOL donfoo - who would suffer?  The list is HUGE - so needless to say this is off the top of my head and not comprehensive:  Prison industry from guards to food delivery to janitorial, Paper industry, Clothing industry, Fuel industry, Big Pharma.  What started as a policy of blatant ignorance and racism has evolved into a policy of lies and massive vested interest in the status quo.  Meanwhile good people suffer, Rick Simpson goes to jail and people pass away earlier and in much more pain than necessary.

I'm glad this hurdle is past.  Now, just need to get to solid food.  My Onc told me not to try and eat anything till the Speech Therapist (swallow) tells me I have the aspiration under control.  Not too happy right now but realize why.

Thanks again everyone,

Joe
