Results in -- all clear!! Yea!

Thanks for all the warm words as I went through the waiting game.

I was BLESSED BLESSED BLESSED to get my results (MRI of thorax, abdomen, pelvis, brain) very quickly (24 hrs!).

And I am ALL CLEAR - NED. Yea!!!

Brief summary for those who don't know my story: I was diagnosed with rectal cancer 6+ years ago (!). I have had 3 recurrences -- each time a solitary lung met -- removed surgically and followed by "mop up" chemo. My latest surgery was June. I'm now on "maintenance/preventative" chemo (Xeloda).

My 'pattern' seems to be recurrence every 18 mos or so. I'm certainly not out of the woods yet -- and I may be looking at prolonging the time until another recurrence, rather than "cure". Although that is not what is on my prayer/wish list! (My oncologist said recently "I've seen some miracles with maintenance chemo" and I replied "I'll take one of those, thank you").

Anyway -- I'm babbling now, silly with joy.

My heart and prayers go out to those who are waiting for results

And thanks again for your support. It means the world to me.

Tara

Tara,

I would do the naked happy dance, but my incisions are still pretty ugly & sore. Just pretend, OK?

I am so happy for you.....Vicki
