    6 mos post chemo pet/ct


    six months post chemo as of 12/23 my pet/ct is clear. It has been such a long journey since my diagnosis 12/1/10. I do not know which is worse, the 4 day chemo regemin every 3 weeks for six months or the anticipation of each post chemo follow up. Either one is a white knuckler. I just pray and hold on tight. I am told that in time, I will just learn to live with "it." I have daily reminder of the removal of a cancerous tumor on my spine and effects of lamenectemy leaving me disabled and in constant pain.
