we have all been taking some hard blows here lately. that frightens me.....

I finally got up the nerve to phone for CEA results yesterday and they were 3.0...up from 2.9 in Dec but still I am going with that

Today was my CTscan.....the waiting room was crammed with cancer patients all drinking our contrast dye....conversations, laughter, hugs good wishes everywhere despite some nasty circumstances.

After my test I ran into a radiologist who said.....Mags I just had a quick look at your scan and I think it looks good.....lungs good.....liver filled with hardware from re-sections but nothing jumped out at him.....i came home fell into bed....tired, exhausted with worry....praying the phone doesn't ring and he has changed his mind

so tentatively I have good news too....appt on Friday with GP to sum things up

best wishes to all

Enjoy the good news! Thanks for sharing it with us. I don't think there will be a change his mind; I think if there was any question he would not have spoken. So...enjoy, this is a day of victory for you.

for people new to the board i should say I am one of the old timers.....6 years now and stage 4.....I am 2 years and a bit away from my second liver resection and not quite 2 years finished a protocol of xeloda and oxalyplatin

I have to say it did not feel any easier today for the ct scan......as i edge away from treatment again.....the anxiety seems to increase....

but not to be negative......there is hope if we keep pluggin away

thanks anne......hugs

My son John and his wife spent a couple of months visiting zambia. They had some good friends over there. They have been trying for a family and looks like the change of venue has done the trick. It's early days and I know a lot of things can go wrong but it feels right, They are very excited. I am excited for them ,they are good kids. Ron.

YAY to good news!!! I got home from work to find a message on my answering machine, I go for my first CT three months into the Folfiri...hopefully it will be good news like yours :) I suppose as it gets closer to the date end of the month I'll probably get scan anxiety.

Hi Mags,

It sure sounds like good news! I would think it would be quite irresponsible for the tech to say something to you, just to have it turn out to not be good. So, I would think he wouldn't have said anything if there was anything suspect to report. So, sounds good!!

So far as the CEA, up one tenth of a point since December is nothing to be concerned about- it's still very low!
Enjoy your good news and you take care!!

I believe cancer is a distant memory for you now....you're so far down the road that when you look back, you can no longer see it.
