Did a colonoscopy yesterday. First one where they used a drug where I remained awake. I was awear of what was being done but simply didn’t care. 

The sedation was interesting to note, but especially noteworthy is that the colonoscopy was all clear. 

And the surgeon said my next colonoscopy can be in five years. That would be November 2022. Wow!

To go from Stage VI to NED and then staying NED since December of 2014. I definently have good cause to celebrate Thanksgiving!

And one of the things I am most thankfull about is you all in this forum. 

Thank You for caring and sharing. Your encouragement. Your worries and struggles. Your positive thoughts and prayers. Your Love!

May your Thanksgiving be overflowing with Love and hope.

Sincerely,

Phil

    Great News

    Phil - First of all - I am so happy that you have such good news to share.  What a great feeling!   I noticed in your write-up that you had folfiri - did you have it up to Dec. 2014?  I have had 27 avastin + folfiri, and am on a 2 1/2 mo "much needed" break.  Going back on same chemo when I resume.  Have multiple liver lesions - no surgery.  CT scans have shown shrinkage in tumours, but still says multiple.

    Oh what a feeling that must be...

    Revel in your fortune, and continue to remain an example to other stage IV forum members.  May their hope be strengthened by such news.  It can happen!

    Thank you!

    Phil, I am one of those current Stage IVs and I thank you for your encouragement.  I have been so fearful of the full on chemo but I have decided today to go for it. Port and all.  You and others are proof it can work and we can conquer the beast.

    WooHoo

    That is more than awesome news since you were diagnosed with Stage 4.  It's such a wonderful feeling to have all that back as "clean and squeaky".  So glad for you and you can have a very great Happy Thanksgiving now.  You have a lot to be thankful for.
