Scan results all good.

Been for scan results Today. Saw my surgeon lady, she walked in, asked me how I was and I nearly burst out crying and told her I was feeling very anxious. She just said well no need as scan was NED (No evidence of disease), could not quite believe it as was Stage 4. Hope this gives hope to others still going through First line treatment. Am aware we are not all on same page but when I last spoke to my Specialist Nurse she said OC is now looked on as a chronic long term condition and that there is a lot they can do to treat it. Plus the new drugs that are being licensed from this year (my surgeon lady said this last time I saw her post chemo 6). Popped in local small Tesco on way home, young chap serving me asked me if I had had a good day, told him I'd had a great day. Love and hugs to everyone x

Maybe your ONC puts on a front. I think they must care as why else would they choose medicine as a career, would get nothing out of it. I have not always seen the same consultant, however the consultant I have seen the most is my surgeon, she came to see me the day I was diagnosed as was in hospital with ascites. I do feel like she has been on my journey with me and have struck up a rapport with her. My husband always cracks at least one joke about my no 1 priority during treatment being to go to Greece, she was not in favour and kept saying Cornwall was very nice. She even mentioned it in her dictated letter to my GP saying she did not think she had managed to convince me (not to go to Greece)!

So when I got to the hospital I was disappointed as her name was not on the board as to which consultants were in clinic. Was surprised when she walked in the consulting room. My husband said she went to hug me when we got up to leave but I backed off and shook her hand instead. I could tell she was really happy to be giving me good news though. Lets face it she had operated on me for 5 hours, my friend said you could say she knows you inside out! They had looked at my scan at MDT that morning so I guess she had said she wanted to do my appointment. She just said my scan was NED (she knows I know the jargon) but then spelt it out for the benefit of letting it sink in.

Take care and good luck with your scan, I will be thinking of you xxx

WOOPEE!! Well done you, what fantastic news. That has made my day, how encouraging that is for us all. Especially been stAge 4. There's a way to go yet for this disease to be put to rest, but there is a lot more paths to try nowadays, and new drugs are sounding promising.

Thanks Dawn, still feel a bit down, difficulty is telling other people as they scare me with their positivity. Feel a bit better Today. CNS was saying if it comes back lots they can do and they are managing it more like a long term condition. My take on that is the newer targeted therapies will be more widely available soon. They have scanned me from the neck down so they are looking at my lungs as well as had pleural effusion. Big cyber hug to you xxx

Feeling the strength of your cyber hug here! Going to pinch some of your good news and hope it rubs off on me ( being selfish there, I do mean others too!) I'm dreaming of when I hear the phrase NED

If you are anything like me it's going to take a while until you ' believe' but you'll get there

So happy you can feel my hug, shame I can't pour you a glass of wine (or three) to share with me and sit and have a nice chat. My neighbour said I was the life and soul of her party a couple of weeks ago, oh dear hope I did not show myself up then again who cares at least I could hopefully make you laugh. Hope you get NED Asap in fact hope everyone gets NED. if I had the power, I would wish for that and world peace. My husband says I am an angel, mind you he also says I am a lot of things not all as complimentary, he is not one for bulls****g me. I laugh at him cus I think he actually believes it, he is not a particularly spiritual person xxx
