    Celebration (Clear scans): I am now having CT scans every 4 months (instead of 3) along with the zometa infusions. The scans continue to remain NED...Pretty good for a Stage 4 diagnosis:)

    Procedure or Surgery (complete hysterectomy ): There was a mass on my uterus that was showing up in all my scans, it was benign. It was decided to remove my ovaries (so I didn't have to have the monthly injections) and the mass (if possible) Turns out the mass did not "pop" off so the whole thing was removed. This was in December 2010.

    Side Effects (Hot flashes): I have had minimal side effects. The first couple of Zometa infusions, I had flu like symptoms. Some bone aches from the zometa infusions, but I keep moving with walking and yoga!

    Radiation (External radiation ): In September of 2010, I had radiation to my breast and sternum. Originally the nodes were to be radiated also. I was at the right timing at the end of a 9 year study to not remove/radiate the lymph nodes, so they were left alone. My 7 week radiation went well, the spot on my sternum is gone:)...
