(when it came back afta my first chemo, just abt where my lympth gland.. had that growth) he took my blood ... and said he would arrange a scan, i got word on monday... to go the next day on the tuesday to go to the rvi at newcastle for the scan.. (by then panic had really set in..) andy was off all that week (my oncologist).. he came in on monday and i thought i cant wait.. so i got my blood results off his secretary... they were 10 so that was great... but she said she hadnt got my scan results and andy wasnt available... and to go this friday (today) and ,........ he said the swelling on my neck was nothing to worry abt the lymph glands in my throat and neck where the cancer had cum back.... was clear....yipeeee.... i gave him the biggest hug... ive to go back in 8 weeks for another check up... but i am so relieved, beause every time ive gone back my ca has risen, or my lymph glands has grown... i thank god that this time things were ok... i just couldnt speak text write.. anything abt these appts, ive been so firghtened abt the swelling, i felt sick... but.. for now things ok.. i will live to fight another day...

  • Hi Shen

    Great news, keep goin. I also go to Newcastle, The Freeman where Dr Dark has taken good care of me since 2007. Had several scary moments but his laid back way can calm things down somewhat. (sometimes he infuriates me too cause I go expecting him to tell me one thing & he tells me the opposite). I had & have a bleak prognosis but he seems to have had the ability to have kept me alive these past free years for which I'm grateful.

    Keep being positive Shen, yr goin to a great group of teaching hospitals with loads of trials available. The staff never seem to give up on patients.

    Good luck
