Wanted to share my good news. I had NED yesterday for my scans. It's been 3 years since my adrenal tumor.

I thought ya'll might be interested in my doc's prognosis. When I had the metastasis to my adrenal 3 years ago, doctor said I had a 66% chance of it coming back somewhere. I got another opinion and the other oncologist said somewhere between 50-66% chance.

My doc hasn't been willing to give me a percentage the past few years, but yesterday I pushed him a little and he said the risk is more like 10-20% now. I'm quite happy with that. It's similar to my risk after my nephrectomy (which was stage 3 grade 3) 5 years ago.

Now I have to get back on my food plan and exercise plan which I fell off of over the holidays. Gained 2/3 of the weight I lost last year back. I want to get back where I was. I felt a lot better at the lower weight.

Three years NED sounds pretty good to me. Long may it continue.

I also have some weight to lose (again).

Thanks! What are Life scans?

My doc says he has no plans to ever stop this. I'm less thrilled about that. I'd like to move to 4 months now, but he doesn't agree. I moved this one on my own. Eventually, I'd like to go to 6 months at least. It's a 1-2 hour drive each way to see them and I have to go twice to do this, so it means missing 2 days of work every 3 months.

That’s what I meant... scans for life

oh dear that is a burden but  it must take some of the fear away( in a funny reverse way)

you have a good guy on your case

Great news!  I too am getting back to my pre-holiday, pre-surgery weight.  I've gained 10 pounds and don't like it at all.  Happy to hear your news Todd.
