Keep on keeping on

Results of PET scan--lymph nodes are shrinking, less uptake (SUV) in maxillary sinus.  They were not able to compare size of sinus cancer because scan was darker than the one in October.  Doctor wanted to stop chemo and see what would happen, I chose to stay on chemo and keep it working.  I am not having problems with Taxol.  Head pain might be from stopping depression med.  Ran out of prescription and I don't have a general doc right now.  Stanford will refill prescription and we will find out in a week if there is a difference.  Right now I feel pretty positive.  Doctor also said (ordered) that I get to Oregon to visit, maybe Matt and I will finally meet!

    Shrinking is real good to hear. Not having any problems with Taxol is good also. 

    So go to Oregon and celabrate. Thank you for posting, this is very good news. But like I said; In for a penny in for a pound. Enjoy your day.............Smile

    Bev,

    Good news on all fronts.

    Oregon would be a better place with you visiting.  Just let me know, I’ll shower, shave and comb my hair.

    Best,

    Wow I am happy to read your post, what a blessing. I can’t understand the doctor wanting to stop the Chemo right when he has the things shrinking, but maybe because he does not see any real tumor just lymph nodes. All we can do is to pray and ask God to guide their hands and mind in treating us. Enjoy your trip to Oregon

     

    God Bless
