Just wanted to thank everbody on the board for helping me get through chemo. On this Tuesday at 11am I go in for my last chemo treatment. If I could buy everyone a beer for getting me through the chemo treatments I would. I have learned so much more in the last 18 weeks then I have in 46 years (Yes i'm 46). The number one thing I learned is that every day is a gift and to see it as such, because you never know when it may be your last one. The number two thing I learned is that I have a lot of friends on this board who without them I don't think I would have made this trip without them pulling me through it... You guys mean the world to me. Thank you

Schedule
Tuesday Dec 29th I go in at 11am for chemo and go home with pump
Thursday Dec 31st they remove the pump and PICC Line
Friday.... I party!!

Congrats on last chemo treatment!!! WOW.... I bet that's a great feeling! From the time you were declared NED .... how many chemo treatments will you have had from that point? I am just comparing notes. I was NED Dec. 1st but Onc says he would like me to have about 3 more treatments (he is gradually reducing cocktail) which I now will get every 3 weeks instead of 2. He said if CEA remains under 3 then he will discontinue all chemo..... BUT...after those 3 more treatments

I remember you were the first one to PM me when I first had my DX. It really seems like a long time ago but really not. I'm so happy for you and wish you NEDNESS for the rest of your life which should be about 100 or so, right?

Hi Brooks,congratulations!I think every oncologist has his(her) own opinion,that's why everybody's chemo is different.You are lucky that the oncologist only gives you 9 round,but my husband has to do 12.Anyway I am very very happy for you that you are finishing up the whole treatment.Good luck with everything.Happy new year.
