Well, I had my PET scan done on Wednesday, but I don't see my oncologist for the results until April 1. Lisa suggested I get a copy of the results before then, so I went by and got a copy. Bottom line, I am still NED! "No evidence for recurrance/metastatic colorectal carcinoma." I am feeling very blessed and want to say thanks again for all the prayers and encouraging words you shared while I was suffering from scan anxiety/paranoia. Lisa, I'm praying hard for your results and a great BIG THANKS for the suggestion to get a copy of my results.

    WooHoo!!
    Congrats! That is WONDERFUL! I always get my test results immediatly. If it's bad news I have time to get my head around it so I can ask intelligent questions of the doc and actually HEAR what he has to say. If it's good news I don't waste time obsessing and can ask intelligent questions of the doc at my appt....I see a trend...LOL

    Cheers to good news!

    Hope and prayers
    To all of the semi-colon family,

    Thanks for all of your good wishes. The main thing I want to share with you is my hope. When I was diagnosed in Oct 2007 at Stage IV, no one, not my doctors and not me, thought I would be here now. Surprise--here I am and I'm NED. My prayer is that this gives you hope, too. I hope and pray that every day brings us one step closer to a cure, no matter what the stage, for all of us and for our families, our loved ones, our friends, and our children. Thank you again for all of your support.

    Hugs and hope for our tomorrows,

    Rebecca

    Congrats to NED @ Stage IV!!
    Your story gives us hope – being NED from Stage IV.

    My husband is going through 2nd 12 series of Chemo (just managed his 7th out of 12) right now. I must say, it’s been rough ..., but I will tell him your story, it will provide him moral boost for sure. He was diagnosed with Colon cancer stage III in Dec. 2006. It had advanced to Stage IV, after a successful 1st 12 series of Chemo treatment and being told that he was “Clean” from the CT scan result. The bad news broke from the 2nd CT scan as my husband went in for a routine check after a year, being advanced from Stage III to IV; it’s been rough road even since then.

    I’m very hopeful from hearing your good news. I think if he can manage another 5 more chemo…
    Thanks for sharing.
