I just returned from my dr's visit. Everything is CLEAR! I had a chest, abdominal and pelvic CT and there is no sign of disease. I'm so very thankful. My dr said I was really boring!

My history, dx'd last February w/stage III cc, 1 node involved. I had a resection in February,6 mos of chemo starting in March. Finished up in September and I'm feeling better everyday. Neuropathy is almost gone. My cancer was discovered when I had a spinal fusion in December of last year. My hemo was 8.3, I was so weak but didn't know why. I had a colonoscopy in Jan and the mass was found. Today my hemo was 14.7 and I feel great.

I just had to share, I know there are others that had appointments today, I pray all is good for them!

Thank you all, so much, for your info, encouragement and expertise. I couldn't have made it this past year without you guys.

I love all of you!

God is so good!!

    Way to go, Char!! Our dx sounds like it was pretty much the same... I was dx'd in Dec 2006 with stage III cc, 1 node involved. I had a resection in Jan/07, 8 months of chemo, 6 weeks of radiation... so I am thrilled to hear that you are doing so well!!

    Congratulations... now go out and celebrate!! :)
