Its finally good news! Trying to breathe and let it sink in. I was diagnosed early Oct 2016- age 45. Inoperable so had 4 cycles of carbo/taxol. Brca 1 confirmed. Mass spotted on breast, biopsy day before debulking surgery. Debunking surgery early Jan. Confirmed OC or falopian tube cancer 3C (caveats that had chemo prior to staging). Breast benign. Back in chemo late Jan. Feb, infection, incision opened up. After 2 cycles of chemo, pulled due to unkown red blood cell blood problems. More transfusions than I can count. Hematologist agreed to let me have more chemo in conjunction with blood. Had my third cycle of chemo which finished last week. Ct/pet scan monday. Nervous wreck because been having a lot of discomfort and aches in all the bad places and some new ones. Belly /side felt bloated. Was sure scans would not be good. Oncologist appointment Wed. Mild panic attack waiting for news, despite last ca-125 coming in at 19 after several small increases. My scans were clean. Clean scans!! No signs of cancer! I'm technically in remission!
I hope that this crazy almost 8 months with so many bumps along the way gives some hope to some of you. After all this, my biggest challenge remains the mental one. How to not live in constant panic and fear. That may be the roughest road yet. I hope you all get the news I got on your next scans!!
Now I am focusing on my blood issues, healing and will be consulting with breast dr's for prevention options. Tonight, I go to my cousin's wedding for my first time at a social function since diagnosis. Very anxious, but excited to start living again.
