I am NED and he/she is my best friend EVER. I have to follow up with labs and chest Xray in 6weeks and then see my ONC again, so it will be the waiting game again, but as far as I am concerned, NED is right next to me and will be there FOREVER! I can go back to work, SO will return soon. I am so excited, I am NED, getting Married, and going to be a grandma in the next few months...LIFE is Good, Thank everyone for all the support and great advise through out this craziness. I am not going anywhere I will be here.

God Bless and I thank him very much for giving me all these blessings

Beth,

Congrats again & thanks for asking about me. I have lots of energy at the moment, which is good. Still watching my CEA level- after rising for a while, it went down some, but now it's rising again. Three oncs all concurred that they don't see the need to scan me because of it any sooner than was already planned (which is end of July). So I wait until then to see if anything is going on in me again since the last scan early April showed no active disease on the PET (but numerous spots still showed on the CT). I have lots of aches and pains in my joints- I'm beginning to wonder if maybe the Avastin isn't causing some of the pains- I've been on it for 11 months straight now, plus I was on it for 6 months when I was first diagnosed. My worst day for pain was the day of and after my last Avastin infusion. The rheumatologist said I don't have arthritis- he thinks it's maybe the Avastin causing my pain.
I'll have to discuss that possibility more with my new onc when I see him next.

Other than that, I'm excitedly looking forward to my family vacation- we're leaving in just six days & I've got lots to do to get ready!

Have a great day, Beth (and everyone!)

Lisa

Dick finished #8 last week. It was a bit harder but he is tough. He kept up walking and today (7 days after treatment) he ran 4 miles. We are getting back to a really healthy diet in preparation of him finishing treatment on August 18. We look forward to that "get out of jail feeling".
Thanks for asking. :) I am so happy for you!
Aloha,
Kathleen

Great news are your NED status. It looks like you are in a positive mood with all around you, a new grandbaby, a new marriage, new status in diagnosis (big one yipeee) being NED, and feeling good enough to go to work. You have your life on track and it has to feel darn good. I'm proud of you and so happy for you.
