Better news than expected

I had a PET scan on Tuesday and went back yesterday (Friday) for results.  Comparing Nov scan to this week, cancer in Maxillary sinus is much smaller.  I will continue with chemo (taxol).  I do have a yeast infection in sinus, have been treated for the last month for bacterial infection.  Stopped antibiotics and will be taking antifungal, hopefully redness and swelling will go down now.

    Bev,

    I love better news and much smaller cancer.  I am sorry you have sinus infection, but hope the meds do the trick.

    Enjoy your spring and save the water.

    Well the part about it's smaller not the infection. Hope the infection clears up. Wow, it's shrinking and that is just wonderful to hear. You're always in my prayers and thoughts as well.

    The Battle is Going Well

    Great news,  Keep pounding that cancer back.  I get those infections a lot, always have and for a time it was worse after treatment.  Finally found a ENT doc who clearmed most of it up.  Keep up the good fight and will be keeping you in my thoughts.

    Good news

    I am so happy to hear you are responding well to the therapy. Your wonderful positive outlook has been inspiring. Hopefully the new med will knock out the infection soon. You have lots more CSN family members yet to meet!
