Hello My Friends,
My brother had his scans yesterday and found out this morning that he is NED! To say that I had a fair amount of scanxiety about his first scan post tx, is an understatement. My family and I were definitely dancing around the kitchen table with the good news.
Apparently one of his nodes isn't "perfect", but the doctor doesn't seemed worried about it. I have read enough on this site to realize that at only 3 - 4 months out from rads, that it is not unusual for nodes to "light up" a bit. They are taking the wait and see approach. Next scan in 3 months.
His primary source of nutrition is still through the PEG (he uses Jevity), which his Nutritionist is none too happy about. Hopefully he will dig down deep and start making himself eat. Apparently he still has practically no taste, and the consistency of food totally grosses him out.
My best to you all. I am constantly stalking!
