    Love your liver

    Go easy on the 'condiments', Ron.

    Hope

    Hi All..!  I do feel a tad bad here..  You see for months I have read about many of you getting clear scans... and I sat and waited for my results..  Yet there have been a couple of you that were less lucky...  And that SUCKS.!   I wish everyone good results, both on the scans and those on treatments...  I have said a little prayer for those not as lucky as me and for those waiting their next scan results..  Bless all of you..!

    Now that the ahem "prayer meeting"  is done... get back to having some fun..!!

    Be Well All..!

    More news..

    OK, because you all seem to like good news... I just got a copy of the report of my last scans and a CD of the scans that I have not yet looked at...  I do need to get this info to my Cardio Doc and see if she agrees...

    The MRI report says my prior seen pulmonary nidules are not seen...!!!!   It goes on to say all the other organs are not remarkable..!  (Note both my Liver and Spleen were noted as enlarged last year, and this year my heart was enlarged prior to starting on Votrient).   The same cysts are present in my right Kidney, same size as they have been in over a year now..   And a few hemangiomas in T12 and S1.. those I am sure are old motorcycle accident injuries..

    The CT scan is pretty good too... no heart issues, no artery blockage  Some pulmonary hypertension in the main artery...

    BUT, all the large Mets have shrunk.. and some are no longer visible..!!!!  OK, so it is all not perfect.. I do have DISH which is not related to Cancer.. and this is why my back has been hurting off and on for eons.. no biggie...

    What is intersting to me.. is that the comments say"interval" decrease in the Mets, yet to me, this is more than a small improvment... Hope I get to go back on the Votrient soon...

     

    Oh yes, in the one week off of the drugs, my blood pressure is on the low side.. just a few minutes ago it was 106 / 64  Not bad for an olde guy..!

    Be Well All..!

    Great report. You'll be ready for IOM. Lots of short interval decreases add up to alot. Good news can come in small increments!
