I just want to let you all know that I had an appt. with my gyn/onc's office today to do my final follow-up on the paracolic gutter mass that was found by CT scan and PET scan last year.  He had seen me three times last year and I'd had a CT scan and labs each time, plus the PET scan early on.  The mass hadn't grown as of Dec., and he thought it wasn't malignant, but he'd asked me to wait 6 mos. and have one more scan so he could be absolutely sure.  The mass was found this time to be slightly smaller, 1.2 cm. x 1.2 cm.  My CA-125 was 6.9, which was also good.  His office is going to stop from ordering CT scans now and just order the labs from now on as long as I don't have any new bleeding or other symptoms.  I won't have to go back for a whole year.  Yahoo!  It's been a long five years.  I feel incredibly lucky. I hope you all get this kind of good news someday.
