edited March 2014 in Ovarian Cancer #1
Today was my last treatment for ovarian cancer and I am just elated. After 4 surgeries, 2 infections, 2 "delays" because of poor blood work, a blood transfusion, bone pain from Neulasta, 6 rounds of treatment and a multitude of other "side effects" - I can officially say that I am in remission. YIPPEE! My CA 125 went from 1632 in July to 6.9 this week.

I realize there is a high level of recurrence with OVCA so my goal right now is to make it through June without hearing that word.

I will also be back to work next week after almost 6 months off and I am excited and scared at the same time. I have been blessed with amazing co-workers, many who donated their hard earned vacation and sick leave to me so that I could battle this thing without worrying about my job. Not many people can say that.

Thank you to each and every one of you that has cheered me on these past few months. As I said before I talk about you guys all the time - my friends are always interested to hear how you are all doing.

Take good care and happy new year to all of you.

    Kris, Congratulations! It is great to hear when people go into remission that is what this web site is all about and it really does lift you up when you hear when someone like yourself has a win. We are all striving for the same wonderful outcome that you have achieved and my New Year wish for you is that you will remain free from this disease. Irene
