....Since my diagnosis in January 2009 of being Stage 4 with a tumor in the liver...and let me tell you, after being hospitalized twice and having a colostomy in the past 4 months, it was the best news I've heard in awhile!

My doctor said the chemo has killed most of the cancer, shrunk the liver tumor, and is eager to keep on it, she knows the percentile is very small with people having these results, but with I believe in the power of prayers, and my positive and humorous attitude does help as well! She is being very agressive with it, and was all smiles with my results, so, you stage 4's, just keep on fighting, it can be done, the chemo can crush this stupid disease!!!! This was just my first scan, but I am so happy to even hear that it's killed MOST of the cancer. I hope the 2nd scan will be just as good as the first...

I was up all night worrying about this day, and now I can sleep alittle easier!

Hugssss to you all for your positive thoughts, vibes and prayers! Thank you for giving me the strength to go on! without all of you, I would be in a dark hole right now! I love you all!

So glad about your results! That is great news! I go next month to have my liver rescanned to see if lesion is growing or active. So good that the treatments are killing the cancer cells.

Donna,

Take it a day at a time...the next scan can wait and you will handle it when it's the right time. Besides, I have faith it will be good! Positive thoughts only.

I am not stage 4 (original DX was stage 3) but had a complete response to chemo/radiation and when I had my surgery, there was no tumor left. It CAN happen. So glad you are having such a good response as well.

Keep up the good work! LOL! We care. Vicki

I will say, you do have a GREAT & POSITIVE attitude. Does Onc Dr recommend surgery for the liver tumor?

....Very happy and just so enthusiastic, I believe the team will have plans for me now, we were taking it one step at a time, as she likes to plan in hopes of crossing that bridge, before getting any bad news when hopes were too high of getting there..and she doesn't like planning ahead of how things will turn out, because you never know ahead of time, and she had said sometimes she had thoughts that the regimen may not take, but people surprise her, and she said "She had sent out alot the people with liver surgery, who she didn't think would be able to send", but she has, she had a huge smile on her face the whole time, It was the first time, that I knew I had real confidence in this woman as well, I really like her, she is really agressive and gave me so much more hope that I haven't had in 4 months since the dx, she just told me she was very happy to hear I wanted to start sooner then expected, and was very eager. She is definitely letting that "guard" up on her I sometimes felt, I didn't think she would loosen up, but she is definitely loosening up in front of me....It was cool..lol

I am new to this board. I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer November of last year. Had my surgery and am in the middle of chemo treatments now. That's very exciting about your CT. Keep up the good work.
