Finally.... the day I have been waiting for.... So my Onc could explain all the results from CT, MRI, and PET/CT. As most of you know I was declared NED in December, 2009 and then taken off drip and put on Xeloda with Avastin. The scan show..........DRUMROLL..... I am STILL NED!!!!!!!! YEAH!!! YEAH!!! YEAH!!!! omg...I have been so worried. Not one thing lit up ... no "New" nothing. The CT scan showed a 9mm nodule in Rt. lung but onc. said that was from a previous infection...NOT CANCER...NOT TUMOR...not anything to give a second thought to. He said it would probably always be there but not an issue. Anyway, he immediately took me off ALL meds....no more Xeloda and no more Avastin. Thats kinda scary knowing you have no protection....thats what I thought....BUT...then I realized HOW i got to this point to begin with...I will just say this once cause I know this is not the religious section and I don't wanna start anything..but dang it... GOD does deserve ALL credit. Ok, I will leave that there.

On a not so bright note.... Onc said the problem I am having with my back is serious. He was a bitconfused why my Primary Care Doc had not done anything...not even acknowledged the issue because evidently something has to be done. Don't think she'll be my Doc much longer. It seems I did refracture the T7 vertebrae and also there is an additional fracture on the T8 rib. He said the T7 actually looks more crushed that fractured. Can't say for sure how that happened. Don't really matter I guess cause damage is done. They are sending me to a back specialist and a pain specialist. He said I would be facing back surgery unless it can be corrected with Cortisone shots.

I don't really care. I know it will be fixed somehow. My main thing here is... I DON'T HAVE CANCER!!!!!!! As soon as I have an empty house..... I will be doing the Nekkid dance!!! Thanks to all of you for your continued support. I am so grateful to all of you. PEACE!

    Woohooooo!!!!!!
    Jennie,

    I'm rejoicing with you in your wonderfully "dull" PET scan (cause it didn't light up! :)
    NED- yeah!!

    The back's not so great, but it is amazing, isn't it, how serious news can pale in comparison to cancer- it's like, "well, it isn't cancer, so I can deal with it!"
    Blessings to you for dealing with that, but I'm glad you're going to back and pain specialists. Yeah- sounds like your primary care doc dropped the ball on that one.

    Well- go celebrate the scan results- what a blessed Easter you'll have this year!
