    after several bouts with the big "C", follow-up exams, remission, etc., I am here to say there truly is hope. Had PET scan yesterday, phone call today reporting "no metastatic disease". Still need to struggle against anemia, but oh so relieved.

    Hoping for good result for you. My treating physician was with Southeast Retina, and procedures were performed at Erlanger, in
    Chattanooga. At first thinking it was detached retina (only needing to be reattached), I had difficult time dealing with the loss of vision especially following removal of my left eye which has been a "journey" of "acceptance". Unfortunately, radiation therapy did nothing but delay the inevitable but perhaps did help prepare me for the loss. I am very grateful the tumor did not spread beyond the eyeball. Hopefully your result will be a total success for radiation therapy. Prayers.

      Hi CIZ101

      5FU comes both pill and IV type. Which you get depends on the type of cancer you have and your treatment. Durning radiation I took the pill form durning the same time
