Hi everyone

Today I went from Scanpanic to SCANTASTIC !!!! I was diagnoses Stage IV 10/2007. I had my last surgery for an ovarian met 6 months ago and last chemo 1 year ago in early May. My PET/CT today was NED!

Thank you all for your support during my panic hours.

My onc said see you in 6 months- and a scan in a year. When he saw the panicked look on my face about a whole year until the next scan he said in 6 months we can negotiate about the scan(CEA is not a good indicator for me -normal at diagnosis).

I could not wait to tell my two daughters(by text at school)I met them off the bus and you could just see the relief in their faces. It is such a wonderful day for our family.

Rob- I think you were getting results today, too. Hoping we will both be celebrating tonight

Grateful to you all,
Dawn

I'm so happy to hear your news! There is nothing better for the cancer survivor!

Alas... my own onc appoiontment was cancelled... postponed until June 9th! Not to worry though. I'm pretty sure it is all clear! I'll probably go to see my GP to get the results in the meantime.

Have a totally great day!!

LLAP...

Wow... what wonderful news after walking around on pins and needles!! The fact your onc said "scan in a year", that is fabulous!! It means he is very confident that it is safe to go a year. If there was anything even remotely suspicious, he would order a scan in 4 months or 6 months or 8 months... but a year?? He's confident that all is well... and you have FREEDOM from worry now!!!

I have a scan coming up in July... 4 months since my last one. I am was so pleased that she said "see you in 4 months". Mind you, we KNOW I have nodules in my lungs, but they were not active in March. So I'm hoping they haven't grown or become active in July. If they haven't, I will be doing the Happy Dance even with nodules!! And will be ecstatic to boot!!

You go, girl.... but not away from the boards :) We need you around here :)

Hiya neighbour!! I hope your results are just as good!! When you go see your GP and get the results, don't forget to come back to the board and let us know how they went :) :)

I will be thinking of you in July and hoping those nodules are just dead...dead...dead

A year is a long time...I think we will negotiate that in 6 months!

Smiles,
Dawn

Dawn,

Your words about your daughters getting off the bus brought a huge smile to my face and warmed my heart. What a great visual you "painted".

Celebrate and look for a PM from me tomorrow, it's getting late here.

I am so very happy for you.

Not a big fan of all that texting technology but this was definitely one instance when it was a cool thing to be able to do. Now I know they check their messages in school even when they are not supposed to. HEHE ..busted... for a good reason
