nodes shrunk but not gone

Hi There

I just had my first MRI after 15 weeks and there is no evidence of the tumour but the mesorectal nodes have not disappeared- just shrunk bu 50%  Does that mean I need  the APR surgery?

Anyone know?

My Story

Good News!

I was able to walk up a flight of stairs today! I haven't done that in about 6 weeks! I'm excited about the progress and the lean toward more independence.

Second chapter

I went to NC and found myself in the unfortunate position of needing more help than my boyfriend could give. I woke up one morning and cried and cried about it, it was a terrible morning. So I returned to New York where I subsequently got a hip replacement. It's about 8 months since my bone marrow transplant and about a month since my hip replacement. I have joint issues that are attributed to GVHD (graft vs host disease.) My hip feels good but my other joints are making the recovery process more painful and more difficult. They switched my medications and put me on Prednisone.

Recently Diagnosed Carcinosarcoma 3c

Well I had a little discharge and didn't really think anything of it and Wow, Boom, life as I knew it is gone.  I had a radical hysterectomy.  I have started chemo and just had a port put in yesterday.  I am struggling with the medical community, I have made radical changes to my life as I am hoping to save it if possible, I feel like I have to figure everything out myself as the medical community sort of takes a know nothing approach - anyone want to make some suggestions as to dos and don'ts.  

Survivor yes but to have really lived life, not so much.

I am a 23 year Cancer survivor. I was 22 years old when I was diagnosed and it has made my life difficult to say the least.

Lost and Broken

I've never written a blog before.  I guess I just need a place to spew out everything in my head because I can't keep saying the same depressing things over and over to my friends/family. 

Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Tongue

I'm in my mid 50s and was diagnosed in 2003. I was an sctive working mother at the time with a 2 year old child. 

By December 2005 i had i undergone 6 surgeries which resulted in removal of half my tongue; all the lymphnodes, muscle and tissue on one side of my neck; 3 rounds of intense radiation and 2 rounds of chemotherapy.
