Good news, I am now in complete remission! I didn't realize there was partial remission but apparently there is. I don't know how long it will last but I plan to live each day to the fullest while I can (as soon as I figure out just how to do it......If you have it figured out please let me know. ) I still have a few more months to recover fully but I am feeling better and better each week. Hopefully I will be posting my 5 year milestone on this forum, then 10, then 20 and maybe more! Thank you all again for your wonderful support and prayers. I could not have done this without you.

I am a bit concerned that I was not able to finish all 6 rounds of IP chemo but my oncologist seems to think I had enough of it to do the job. let's hope he is right. Anybody hear of a maintenance chemo pill? I get my IP port removed tomorrow and am suppose to ask the oncologist/gynaecologist what he thinks. Unfortunately he doesn't ever want to remove my IV port. I guess he is just being realistic. Scans are completely clear and my CA125 is still 6. Life is good!

Terrific Pamela!

So happy for you!    Great with getting your Port out.   They didn't want to remove mine either.  I had it in for 5+ years.    I just got it out in October of 2011 because my local area hospitals refused to flush it out because my main doctor was in another state.  I went over six months without a flush and finally found someone to take it out.  It is good it have it out.    Great report on scans and CA125!   

Doin the "Happy" dance for you!!!

I am very happy for you. Enjoy every day.

Here are some examples of having fun from the last couple of days: playing hooky from work, trying on shoes, slowly having coffee and a smoke in the park, going to the movies 9:30 pm show by myself (I watched "This is the End") and eating a jumbo tub of popcorn; driving 100 mph at night on the freeway with windows and sunroof open. I don't know if that qualifies as living every day to the fullest; but it sure beats sulking on the couch and thinking about cancer which is all I was doing 1 year ago.

Many Hugs,
