I think I mentioned that the doctor wanted PET and CT scans after my second round of R-DHAC for DLBCL. This is after R-CHOP failed to make an improvement. The plan was to have the scans this week and then meet with the doctor on Monday for the results. The doctor's PA just called because they have the PET results and figured they would tell me now:
"While there is still some small cancer activity, you are much further along than we thought. So one more R-DHAC then into stem cell transplant."
I think you can all imagine what a relief that was to hear...because during treatments...you just can't trust your body. I expected to hear that I'd need a fourth round before SCT or even that it wasn't really working and we need a Plan C.
Looks like all those prayers and positive thoughts everyone is giving...is paying off!
I plan to live forever! So far; so good!
