Scan Results Day

Morning ladies :) Well it's finally here, results day for my post chemo scan. At the moment I'm feeling okay because my consultant has already told me that he doesn't expect to find anything as I've responded to treatment so well, so fingers crossed. Trouble is my consultant is just so clinical, and has already told me it'll come back, but I prefer not to think about that, so I just hope he focuses on the positive today, and doesn't start talking about when it'll come back when I've only just got rid of the bloody thing! (God willing) And that if he does talk about it, that I manage to stay strong and don't break down into floods of tears like I normally do :( Anyhoo...wish me luck :)

Great news. I pray that you will have a very very long remission. Do not think too much on the reocurrence. Live healthily, eat and exercise well.

Good luck sweetie, fingers crossed for a clear scan. My bestest friend was told hers would definitely come back and we're 3 years on and she's still clear and really well, they don't know how each individual will do long term simply because we are all individuals and react differently, so onwards and upwards ❤️Xx Jane

Absolutely everything crossed that your scan results go well. Your Onc may say it will come back, with me it did, with my mum it didn't - so no guarantees that it will...... hold that thought!! xx Attend that meeting surrounded by positive vibes from all of us xx

Hi all, thankyou for your lovely messages, and thought I would come back on here and share my news. NO SIGN OF DISEASE!! :):):) I'm so relieved and of course I burst into tears! Can't win lol. My Onc was on holiday so saw a different one today who just focused on the good news, and said he would see me in 6 weeks but just touched on if I had any pains or was concerned in any way, I was to get in touch. So today the sun is shining and it's a very good day :D

Wishing you all the best. I agree, they don't seem as positive as they should. I have been negative for any new finding over a year after last chemo, and 1 1/2 years after surgery. I am optimistic, but you are correct/ they are not so optimistic. Mine was stage 4, grade 3b, so I understand but I'd like to think that there are those with out recurrence .

Hope everything went well today, I cried also when my consultant told me 5-10% of his patients recure, I am now 11 months in remission and still going strong.

Hi Teresa. Wishing you all the very best. The waiting, is horrendous I know. I was told my chances were 50/50 and that was nearly 30 years ago. So take heart and hopefully you will be celebrating very soon. Love Catherine x

Wow you have been going through this 30 yrs now ?

I was very very fortunate I know. Although very large and very rare mine, hasn't returned (so far!). But I can recall only too well the horror and the worry of that time. I had 2 very young children at the time and I know you have a beautiful little girl. For me, that was the unbearable aspect of the whole OC journey. You hope and pray to see them to adulthood. With all the improvements and refinements in treatments since then things are so much more hopeful now. Wishing all the best with your treatment. Catherine.x

Thanks for sharing positivity. Yes it's just wanted to see my little girl grow up and be their. She's left me this morning for a nite I'm struggling post chemo. But I know it's for the best xx

It is very hard, I remember having to let your little girl be cared for during your treatment but like mine were at the time (age 5 and 2) they seemed fine with the change in their lives and it was easy to explain away Mummy's 'sore tummy' . Much more difficult, I imagine if they're older. Keep her secure and happy and she will be fine. My then 5 year old (now 34!) doesn't recall that time at all and the then 2 year old (31) certainly doesn't. Much love Catherine.x

Thank you I agree let's hope it's easy for her to adapt to when older...

The dr told me not to keep it from her.

I will get professional help maybe when the time is right.

Do you have any other long term OC friends ?

Hi Zena. No,I know no-one like me but only because there were was no internet and no way of getting in touch with others. I think maybe one charity had just started at that time. But to be honest at the time with a young family and work I just wanted to forget all about it. But this forum is brilliant and would have been a huge help in the times of suspected recurrence. To be able to communicate with people who understood would have been brilliant. I'm sure tho there are other long termers like me.x
