Good News At Last

Hi, hope you all had a great Christmas. Seen my oncologist today for the result of my CT scan after three sessions of chemotherapy, and it appears to be is working! My cysts have shrunk from 10cm to 4cm, and most of the residual mass(?) has disappeared.

This is the first bit of positive news we have had since my diagnosis in September, and I know I still have a long way to go, but I am so relieved that I had to share the news with you all.

I have my fourth chemo tomorrow which may spoil New Years Eve, but if its working it will be well woth it!

Love Brenda

  • Thanks everyone for your lovely comments.

    Todays chemo went well, took 7 hours and I managed to sleep through about half of it, which must have really impressed my hubby, as he was off work he came with me, what a great way to spend a days holiday! Think I had better let him watch the darts on TV tonight to make up for it.

    Home on the sofa feeling hungry, now where are those left over mince pies, after 8s and Thormtons chocolates??

    love Chris xx

    ps I used to sleep thru all my chemo sessions, Martin didn't stay with me, I always left him jobs to do xx

  • Positive. Hi Brenda, Great news I know how you feel. I had good news with my scan last week after 3rd chemotherapy, seems to be working and Ca125 down from 9,000 to 47. Should have had 4th on 27th but platelets too low so a bit gutted but gave me more quality time with my youngest son and his wife who were home from San.Francisco. So fingers crossed for next week then only one to go.

    All the best to you and everyone for a good 2013.

    Love Sue x
