Another 3 months reprieve

I hesitated to post this as so many ladies are going through a tough time at the moment. But I decided I would because I’ve always said that we should share good news whenever we can.

Went for my 3 monthly check with the Oncologist yesterday and was told I’m doing brilliantly. Clear scan, ca125 of 9, physical examination excellent. She said, “get out of here and enjoy the next 3 months until I see you again”. I feel absolutely great not withstanding the constant washing machine brain!!

9.5 months in first line remission and so thankful.

Hugs to all, especially those who are in my thoughts a great deal, you know who you are, Marian xxx

I had the same news last Thursday when I saw my oncologist. She also told me my next appointment would be the last 3 month review as I will then be moving to 6 months, having been NED for 2 years since ending chemo! I said I found that a scary thought, but she explained that after 2 years the likelihood of recurrence decreases significantly, which is great to hear.

Love to you all,

Same "boat" here, as I saw mine last week. I have two; - one (male) I see yearly, the other (female) has been seeing me every 4 months. Just one more 4 mo check- with a CT scan, then I graduate to 6 months check up (for her). Last Chemo was Dec 31, 2015. And neither doctor has said very much- but that I was "a 4C" and doing incredibly well. I would have loved to hear that after 2 years the likelihood of recurrence decreases significantly. I'm so glad you shared your GREAT, GREAT news! I LOVE IT! And here's to many more good reports-all around!!!!!

Wonderful news and in agreement this forum welcomes the highs as well as the lows. It’s the nature of the disease !
