No Mo Chemo...For Now

Yesterday was a wierd day. I had formally been told that I might have to take the maintenance chemo indefinitely but my oncologist decided that since I was NED and all my numbers looked good, he didn't want to risk kidney damage that can be caused by the Cyramza. So, whoop whoop, I'm done for now. 

Unfortunately because I am late Stage 4 and having cancer return twice there is a strong probability that it may come back again.  But I will celebrate for now. I even got to ring the bell for the third time.

'Third time is a charm.'

Hopefully you've rung the bells for good, and continue NED for many a year.

Enjoy it and celebrate like you said.  If you are NED just embrace that.

To me, it makes sense to live each day to its fullest.  Each day you are not on chemo is even that more rewarding.  Congratulations.

To be NED and not need chemo - that is the day the rest of look forward to!  Even if you need the chemo again later, an extended break will be good for you.
