As many of you know my sister-in-law Kelly, was diagnosed with MMMT /Carcinoma Sarcoma Stage 3C in September 2012. In January of this year she was diagnosed with brain METS as well as a lymph node in her abdomen and a mass in her chest cavity. In January she had brain surgery followed by cyber knife radiation, In February she had abdominal surgery to remove a large lymph node that was also cancer, at that time the doctor inserted a mesh barrier in her abdomen to protect her from radiation. Last week she had her first scan and no cancer cells at all in the brain. Kelly will start 5 1/2 weeks of radiation for one minute a day five days a week next Monday. The radiation will be for her abdomen.
Kelly is gaining back some weight she had loss during both surgeries, walking 3 miles most days and doing very well. We give God all the glory and are thankful for all the good days she is currently having. The cyber knife doctor says she will have a scan every 8 weeks from now on.
By the way, her CA125 never went above 8 during this whole episode and her doctor now says that is not a good indicatator for her.
