I just want to wish everyone on the website the peace and joy of Christmas.
Since I last posted the spectre of lung involvement has disappeared and that particular alien has returned to his planet.
However the alien who has caused my peri Aortic lymph nodes to enlarge even more is still attacking me with his nasty weapons. I have been on watch and wait for six months with scans tracking his progress.
I returned on the 13th of December for results and was met by a new Oncologist who had barely had a chance to study my extremely large file. He was very nice , extremely empathetic and wants me back again on 3 Jan . In the meantime he will have a MDT meeting having compared all my previous scans etc. There is no spread to anywhere else and no ascites which I feared.
Truthfully I was happy to be free of treatment over Christmas . My last two CA125 s came out at 160 both times and they did a third one on the day of my appointment. I forced myself yesterday to take my finger away from the dial so I wouldn't get bad news before Christmas ! Maybe that's putting my head in the sand.
I was so saddened this year to hear about the lovely women lost to this horrible disease with Suzanne being the latest victim. I hope the New Year brings good news of a breakthrough.
In the meantime have a wonderful Christmas with loved ones . Take care
