Hey all !
Will be on my way shortly to the U of M. I'm excited to get these over and done with to get there uptake on where I'm at. They started out being my second opinion, and now are my primary onco's. I was looking through paper work for insurance purposes...and my other medical onc has passed me on permanently. hmmm...wanted to call them and say hunh ? They said for treatment purposes they could and would work with the U hand in hand. (would save me 120 miles one way) The U does have Hope Lodge if we needed it. (hoping beyond hope for NED) Won't know anything til the 19th...but I'm sure with this team of drs I now have all will be good ! Have a good day everyone ! Katie

I just had my scans on Monday and was given a NED. I hav Dr. Jha who has been great as my doctor, my rad onco's is Dr. Lee and she has been excellent for treatment as I saw her yesterday for follow up visit. This is a great facility with top docs and nurses. I am praying a big NED for you and will keep you in my thoughts.

I hope your scans went off without a hitch and that the wait until the 19th goes quickly. Having just had my scans a month ago I know how long that wait can be. Can't wait to congratulate you on your NED!

I won't get results until my medical onc. appointment on the 19th...unless the tumor board thinks I need to be in sooner. They have been amazing ! I was at scans for 5 hrs today...besides the drive, very tuckered out ! 1 and half with MRI...2 different contrast used. 3hrs total for PET/CT scan (the norm) except they gave me not only the nuclear IV but also a barrium drink and another contrast to check those lungs and liver. Got the whole nine yards ! I want you all to know your support is amazing and soooo apreciated ! God bless you all ! Katie

I'm glad you got all your bases covered. It seems they were very thorough and that is great.
