Good News!!!

Wow,am really fussed, nearly kissed my oncologist, when he told me that my metas tic tumours on my lung had reduced by 50% .I am only halfway through my first chemo with Carboplatin, and whilst I know that at stage4,prognosis not too good, this result gives me HOPE!! And the incentive I need to cope with the chemo side effects.

Light at the end of the tunnel maybe!!!!!

That's fantastic news! I am so pleased to hear it and especially to see the big smile on your face that is shining through the words. Bring on the second half of the carboplatin, eh!

Its brilliant news you are having a good response to Carboplatin and are what the ONCs call 'Platinum sensitive' ie the chemo is working. Good news makes us all feel better doesn't it just, take care xx.

Very pleased for you, that is a good sign. Your oncologist is obviously happy too, I agree good scans make the side effects easier to deal with. I am smiling at wanting to hug your oncologist. My latest scan was good also and all I could do was look at him blankly. The thought of hugging him did come into my mind but I didnt act on it.tg. I would never be able to go to him again as he is a very quiet man.

Amazing news Jackie. You are a star. I hope the remainder of the chemo goes just as well and you have more good news to celebrate. I had single agent carboplatin first time round and there was no sign of the b*ggers at the end. Let's hope you have the same outcome.

Celebrating and supporting you all the way. xxxx love Annie
