Having had a CT scan and bone marrow biopsy after my 4th cycle of chemo i went to hospital yesterday for my 5th session & my test results. Imagine how stunned i was when my Onc said chemo was being cancelled as my biopsy shows less than 1-100,000. I have to have another biopsy in 3 months to confirm but my blood counts have also returned to normal range and it looks very promising that we have achieved our ultimate goal.I had so many questions i should have asked like is that a good result but i just sat in silence trying to make sure i listened to what he was telling me, the wife just sat teary eyed.
So anybody who is suffering from chemo and the sickness i had you just hang on in there because its all worth it.
Dont get me wrong i know i will have to live with this thing for life and i know i need lots more testing before we declare victory but to be free of chemo is an amazing feeling as i have suffered horrendous sickness.
As my Onc has also stated, if we can keep this under control for a few years its probable that future treatments will be far less toxic than chemo and far better tolerated .
