Post Treatment Scan


Hubby's post treatment CT scan showed his cancerous node shrunk by 1/2 and they believe what's left of it is dead tumor. Originally they had said he had tumor wrapped around and invading his trachea, in his thyroid, and in various nodes. The doctor didn't see any of that on this CT... It really just addressed one para tracheal node. Seems a little witch-doctor-y... 

Next scan in 3 months.

    good scan



    A dead tumor is good tumor in my book and the  rest sounds like icing on the cake.  All systems appear to be headed in the right direction.

    Best to you,

    Wonderful news!!

    Matt made me laugh, but he's right.....the only good tumor is a dead tumor.....and it sounds like your hubby's Dr. isn't seeing the other stuff in this scan either.  Things are getting better!  The word scan and witch Dr. don't go in the same sentence.
