jcawork Posted November 12, 2004 Share Posted November 12, 2004 Ok here goes, All CT's and PET are NED !!!!!!!!!! Significant radiation damage w/ scaring-my big cough! Saw Oncologist today who said congrats on NED but I want to do Camptosar and Carbo for a few rounds (once a week for 2 weeks, then 1 week off, then do it again) to help prevent recurrance. I of course started crying because I figured w/ NED I was done. After he stated the current recurrance stats he feels the extra guns at the end like this are worth it. I had trouble listening and considered throwing myself out the window into traffic. He also wants me to do PCI (3 weeks) He gave me a break until 1st week of Dec (40 days between chemo's) and doesnt care which order I do them, PCI first or the 2 rounds of Camptosar first. I tried to convice him that I didn't need to do this and he didn't budge. I am in medicine and spent too many weeks interviewing Oncologits. He is considered a top dog around here. He is very bright. I however, am not happy about 3 more months of this. I know it's about surviving, but I am tired. Thoughts, has anyone else done this? Oncodoc Joe, thoughts? I have met NED, but feel a little like the chair was knocked out from under me. Jen Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
