PET scan looks great!

I had a PET scan last Friday and got a call from my oncologist's office today. They said everything looked great on the scan, no problems, no evidence of cancer! What a relief!

I was diagnosed last August after a colonoscopy which found a tumor, and then colon resection surgery. I'm stage IIIb. I had 12 treatments of FOLFOX starting in September and finally finishing two months ago in April--it took that long because I had some postponements of treatments along the way due to low WBC count and low platelets.

This was my first post-chemo scan and I've been anxious, worrying about starting off this summer with more chemo treatments and/or surgery. I'm so relieved to know that everything's okay so far!

Now go do the happy nekkid NED dance! Great news!

I was diagnosed with colonoscopy last August, resection, but didn't start chemo till October after problems with an infected port. (Stage IIIc or IV, never fully determined.) I finished FOLFOX in April too. I just got my news of NED two weeks ago. Isn't it wonderful to be done with chemo and NED?!!!!

for your congratulations and good wishes! I know that you all REALLY know just how it feels to wait for results, and how relieved I was to get the good news! I wish everyone could get a scan report like mine.

Erin, thank you for commenting on the picture of me and my basset hound Buddy. He was diagnosed with nasal cancer just as I started chemo last September, and he passed away in October. He was very special to me and I still miss him a lot.
