Hi , sorry no one replied to you till now.I joined today this forum.Hope you're doing okay now.

 I was diagnosed with Stage IIB last year July. My AFP was 1200 and came down to 81 just before the start of chemo treatment.And came below 5 after the 1 round of chemo.But still had to go through 3#BEP and 1#EP chemo regimen.

I'm sorry, but I do not know about how the prognosis will be in your case. But yes,I've read many of them diagnosed with Stage 4 T.C and living still strong after 10 years...

 

How did the PET scan go? Everything is fine,right?
