Hi Everyone, hope all had a nice holiday doing things that make you smile.
I met with my doctor to go over recent CT scan and Chest x-ray and all is seemingly well! There are a couple lesions on my liver unchanged and probably cysts to watch although it is noted that the liver is somewhat enlarged, (another possible SE of treatment), some degenerative bone areas, (made worse by my breast cancer meds but take what I can to help), the tissue thickening on the anus as well as affected nodes remain stable and unchanged. I feel the report read ok but did not really have the words NED. I am having a bone scan later this summer as there is some concern about sclerosis and bony thickening on my ribs. I am also seeing a new colorectal doctor at a bigger branch of the same clinic in August just for a consultation. (I am happy with my surgeon but he is general surgery and just have some questions I'd like to discuss with a specialist), also seeing a gynocologic oncologist (new) same reason. I love the medical team I have and don't plan to make permanent changes but may add to them if needed. I did get the feeling that since I'm doing well (I think) my doctors are more relaxed than I'd like on surveilance. Maybe its just me, and I pray for continued health, but I want to be prepared for whatever comes my way. I always feel better after seeing my PCP, she is wonderful and ties it all together, I will see her late August.
For the next month I have my 3yr old grandson (my daughter is away at military training), so between school and him should have no time to worry about verbage on the scans that I don't understand anyhow!
