Remission - bizzibee

Celebration Associated with Lung Cancer. Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (5 Experiences)

When I heard those words.....................it was almost unbelievable! WOW! But then the FEAR hit me as well. WHY? Because I knew the cancer cells were still there..........they just had ceased to grow. The oncologist said that there were no clinical trials to identify that the Avastin (chemo drug) was why my cells stopped growing. My blood counts are and have been "top of the line"....nothing abnormal. The oncologist gave me the choice of stopping the Avastin, which I get every three weeks by IV port, or continuing it. I thought about it for a minute and then looked at him and said..................God is working miracles here and I think He has Avastin as His tool so I want to continue to get it. So every three weeks, I go to the Texas Oncology clinic here in Austin and receive my Avastin. I get CT scans every three months................next one is in October. I feel good and have just about 100% of my original strength back. I plan to be around for awhile yet. I have things to do, people to see, and places to go.
