My PET scan results from yesterday came back unbelievable! (Stage IV liver mets too many to count...dx 6/06) After my 16 rounds of chemo, I guess the beast got discouraged as only one small lesion "lit up" in my liver and everything else is dead, dead, dead! No spread, etc. I was so determined to do chemo until I absolutely had to stop it and I did. My daughter reminds me that, also, for a 63 yr. old I am very healthy, no other health issues, and in great shape as I kept up with my Taekwondo and gardening etc. even with the chemo. I had many prayers and of course the good thoughts from all who are on this message board. I will be monitored and I am not sure if maybe Dr. will want to take out this one lesion or do a wait and see. I will find out details on Oct. 5th. I am doing a happy dance! Never give up!

I had the 5-fu in the pump for 44 hours, Leuvorican (sp) that makes the 5-fu work, Oxaliplatin and Avastin. This was done every two or three weeks depending on blood tests. I only stopped the Avastin for a little while when I had to have a tooth pulled. My Dr. also never gave me a set # for treatments.

Excellent news!!! I'm flashing back to when my mom had a similar result - a tough battle, but ultimately went cancer free. You will too...I know it!

I'm so impressed with your positive attitude and amazing spirit. You are a true inspiration to all of us.

Congratulations and keep us posted...and think about joining us for ColonPalooza 6 in 2008.

Great news! You encourage all of us to workout. I keep having interuptions (exercise interuptous) with trips and other fun and sometimes not so fun things to do. I've done two days in a row now though, I'm on a roll. Please keep posting so that I will keep working out.

So happy for you. That's great news. Continue to do what your doing . It's working . God Bless. I remember at the outset we were told liver resection not an option for my hubby. We continued to believe and be persistant and continue with treatment and not give up. Now it's going to happen..mets have shrunk so much and in one area. Surgery in October. Continue to believe. God Bless and keep us posted.

My Onc is talking about going to Avastin too.
