Hey..... NED stopped by today!!! :)

YEP.... NED came calling today. God I love him!!! I have been holding off sharing my info until I had all the facts in. I had my 3rd recurrence in my right lung and completed my 3rd Cyberknife on Dec 31st. I had my CEA done 4 days after CK and it had gone up to 13 from 8. Doc said probably due to cancer cells dying off. I wasn't so sure and patiently waited for my next set of test which are now complete. Scans showed lungs ALL clear. A few nodules are there but don't light up. The Cyberknife was again 100% effective. I just got new CEA results and it is now 5.1!!! WOW! Lowest it's been in a long long time. Doc expects it to go even lower as he says there is no signs of any cancer anywhere!!! Music to my ears. I can finally breathe a sigh of relief and relax. I sure was in need of this "vacation" and I hope it lasts a while.

Thank you all for always having my back.... love you all!

Jennie

    I am on Vectibix which prevents new tumors from forming so ..no.. I will not take a break from that. That is fine with me because the Vectibix is not like chemo. Side effects are nothing for me (basically dry skin...no rash) so I will definately take this every day and twice on Sunday if necessary...LOL. Take care

    WooooHoooooo!!!
    So glad NED is a friend of both of us, after multiple battles!

    It is bothersome when CEA first climbs from procedures, but so exciting when it comes back down! CELEBRATE!

    That is great news! So happy for you. It's nice to hear someone can breathe a sigh of relief instead of fighting on the front lines 24/7. Hope to hear how you do in the coming months. Best of health to you!
