    Oh No

    I don't think anyone wants an unexpected call from their oncologist...I had a scan with contrast on Thursday, saw the oncologist, and was told it was clear. Today he called me at work and told me that he had just received the radiologist report and there were changes in my lymph nodes and at the surgical sight. He said it was just an FYI, we were not going to do anything at this point.....wait till the next scan in June.....Now I a freaked out.....I will not sleep one minute until June...This is not for the weak of heart, that is for sure!

    Remission

    Celebration

    Had a scan today.....all clear! 7 months post chemo and it looks good. Had some changes at the surgical site that seemed to be worrisome. It has been decided that I have keyloids (sp) on the inside. Things are looking up and I feel great!!!!!!
