Hello all you lovely ladies. Well, I went with my mum and dad yesterday to get her scan results back. They're 'really good' the oncologist said I dare hardly believe it still after sleeping on it! She said there was a 'minute' bit that could be disease, or could be scar tissue, but overall if she looked at the scan without knowing it was from a cancer patient, she would pass it off as healthy. The relief was palpable!
Our oncologist obviously made us aware that it is more likely than not that more treatment will be needed in the future, but for now, onwards and upwards
And they won't test her CA125 at her 3 month check unless mum has started feeling unwell - what so you think about that? She can have it checked if she wants, but as they don't treat unless you're symptomatic anyway, then psychologically it was advised this was a better choice... I think I am inclined to agree. What with the 'Anti-cancer diet' that we've been reading up on, I am hoping that we can keep any bad cells in check!
This site has been such a support - I will keep a close eye on it, and of course any arrangements for OC awareness month 2014 that were discussed a week or so back in a blog I'd still love to help with!
Love and so much appreciation to you all,
