Follow up appointment.

Yay! As suspected the tumour is cold on the PET scan so the new wedge shaped shadow is Fibrosis (scarring) afterall. The fibrosis will never get better, it is there for life. I will take that result, I can live with the scarring but not cancer. I still have that hot spot in my bowels so a colonoscopy has been re-referred, the last one got purged from the system probably because of Covid. The Bowel Cancer screening, with the stick, came back as negative a couple of months ago. All in all I am happy with the this morning's result.

I will have another appointment in 6 months, preceded with an X-ray.

I have some bottles of ale, from my daughter's Father's day present. I also still have some Remy Martin (Champagne Cognac) as well. Cheers.

The Oncologist repeated an earlier statement "I really think we have cured you." So yes, over the moon.

Theoretically, I have a max of just 3 more appointments, possibly only 2, and 'I can ring the bell', declared as cancer free in 18 months. As long as they can sort out my bowels for a likely polyp/adenomaas in the meantime :)

Best wishes for everything, I hope you will be telling us you have rung the bell when your checks are complete. A friend's granddaughter with leukaemia has rung the bell just recently. It was brilliant news to hear.

I still had to go out very early at 7:15 to make the 9 am appointment and have time to get my breath back. Home by 10:30 am. Most people on the buses were still wearing masks and had not ditched them early :)

Wonderful wonderful news. Thrilled and delighted for you. 👍🍾🥂

All good so far, hope it stays so. All the best x

Glad to hear it. Waiting for results is hellish however hard you try to be sanguine about it.
