PET results - NED!

Yesterday I had a PET scan. Got the results today. Normal! Or, as my dr. told me over the phone "You have no evidence of disease". How sweet it is!

Brief history for those of you not familiar. I was diagnosed with rectal cancer Dec 2002. Turned out to be Stage 3. I had chemoradiation followed by surgery followed by more chemo. Two years after the surgery (last April), I was diagnosed with a solitary metastisis to the lung (making me Stage 4). I had surgery followed by 6 months of chemo (FOLFOX -- ended just before Christmas).

Hoping this good news brings you even a tiny fraction of the joy I am experiencing -- and that it might offer hope to some.....
