MRI Results

I got my MRI results this week and am pleased to report that I'm no longer Stage IV uterine, or apparently any stage uterine at all. The retroperitoneal lymph node mets were killed off by the CyberKnife treatments I had in January and nothing new has come up, so I'm guardedly optimistic on that count. In other news, the still-unidentfied ("probably of intestinal origin") pelvic tumor has shrunk back down to 8 cm, the size it was in April before it blew up to 14 cm and landed me in the hospital. Of course I'd hoped it would be gone entirely, but in retrospect I'm not sure how realistic that was given the original size. I just had my 6th round of Keytruda and am tolerating it well other than some mild side effects, so I'm praying the d**n thing will eventually shrink itself right out of existence. Meanwhile I'm grateful for the results and wanted to share some positive news with you.

Outstanding!!  All things moving in the right direction, AND you're feeling ok too?  Cause for celebration.  Back when we're not whooping it up, I'd loveto ask about the mild side effects of Keytruda, and more about cyberknife, as I know both of those are going to be something I'll need to be read up on when the time comes.   But in the meantime, FIESTA!

Did I miss something here? When did you break your ankle? How? I'm so sorry things keep happening to you like they have. Stop it already! Wink

Not to hijacj Bobbi’s good news but I broke it about 3 weeks ago. My ankle just rolled on me on a Manhattan street after a wonderful evening. It’s minor, not a cast or anything but yes,just another thing to deal with right? Just call me Job!

Oh my! I'm so sorry to hear that, Susan. My ankle used to roll out from under me, too, until I had it reconstructed with bone anchors. Will they eventually have to do something like that with you?

Oh, I hope not Bobbi! This is the first time it happened and it’s relatively minor. Just a little break on the end of the fibula. I hope it’s just that I was a little tired and not something more serious like my osteoporosis causing the break. The orthopedic guy I saw ( actually I think I just saw the PA) was not familiar with my history although I tried to tell him.

That sounds painful. Glad it is not serious. Hope you will get better soon, CheeseQueen.

Cheese, we are now a double-support club that no one wants to join - I'm in recovery from a whale of a broken ankle.  Fell down the stairs on the first day of our Alaska cruise, which immediately became the last day of our Alaska cruise.  Surgery, screws, plates and a very long recovery thus far.  So sorry to hear you're dealing with this too!

Smile  Wonderful news and I am so happy for you. As you know, our paths have been similar so your news always makes me happy. I have my 3 mo. check tomorrow and as we all know, am trying to act as if there is no worry, but can't wait to get it behind me - whatever the news. I stop my Eliquis 2 days before in case they need to do a biopsy, and keep my fingers crossed that they won't.

So you keep on doing better and better!!! Love good news !!!
