3 Years NED!!

Just got the results from my latest CT scan, all clear! I haven't posted in awhile, so for those that are new, I was diagnosed Stage 4 Feb. '04. Resection, 7 months of FOLFORI w/Avastin, and then RFA in October '04 for three remaining spots on liver. CT scans every six months since have shown NED. I will defer the naked happy dance to others (wouldn't be a pretty site), but we (my wife and kids) will be celebrating tonight. Mike

First of all.....



You know, if you are shy, you can do this in the shower!!! (I, of course, prefer the top of a bar!!!).

Grrrrrrreat news!!!! I'm 2 years NED on the colon, 1 year on the breast, so I am 'behind' you...lol..

Meet a gal 2 days ago that is a 21 YEAR colon cancer surviver...she shared that after her last colonoscopy, her doc said "See you in 5 years". To which she replied..."Oh, I don't think so, by then I'll be 90, and I'll take my chances!" WHAT an inspiration!

Hugs, Kathi

Great to hear the good news and to hear from you. I've been wondering about how you were doing. I'm a month behind you so I always think of you when my testing gets close.

Hugs to you and your wife.....missed you in Nashville!!!

What awesome news! I remember my 3 year anniversary (now almost 6 years ago!) It was then that I truly believed that I had a long life ahead of me....and I better start truly living it! I made some changes, all good, and now almost 9 years post cancer have designed a life that is full and still largely imperfect! Congratulations....enjoy the night and the next 40 years!

Hi Mike -

Thanks for your inspiring post. I am Stage IV (diagnosed May 2005) - have been NED since late August 2005, but scans are coming up next week. Always a high anxiety period for me and hearing your good news is great for me, as well as for you.
