PET Scan Wednesday, Flex Sig Thursday

Yep, I got two big tests over the next two days. As a reminder, I was diagnosed stage four last May, with seven liver mets and a suspicious lung nodule. Six Folfox sessions (three months) later a PET scan showed no evidence of disease -- that was in September. Another PET scan in November also was clean. This is my first since then, and it's way overdue. My oncologist's nurse thinks I'll be okay since I've not had any symptoms and my energy level is good and I've been getting treatment (Erbitux and Avastin) all this time, so I'm hoping she's right. I'd like another clean PET scan, and another clean flex sigmoid exam too. Wish me luck!

Hi Rodney,
I'm sending positive energy your way and will be thinking about you!
I tried to e-mail you back, but couldn't figure it out. I'm not great on computers. I am going for a Master's degree in Educational Psychology for Marriage and Family Therapy. I have a BA in Child Development which led to teaching toddlers. I really love working with children and people in general. I have considered going for a credential to teach elementary school, but I hate how school is being taught in my area. They totally teach for national testing leaving out all the arts and any room for spontaneous creativity. I couldn't deal with that.
Take care and stay positive!

Best of luck Rodney- will be thinking of you. My b/f had the very same stage 4 diagnosis and has been clear since Sept- another scan at the end of April. He's also on Erbitux but with Xeloda.

Good luck!

"A 'clean' flex sigmoid exam"? Rodney - I'm not gonna touch that one! Let' just say I hope they always clean those things before they reuse them!

I'm curious why not a colonoscopy? I could probably get my annual done with a dental mirror and a flashlight, but I insist that they do the full colonoscope so they can push into my small intestine as well.

Whatever the case, my friend - kick butt! I'll say an extra prayer for you!
