shelliemacs Posted July 9, 2003 Share Posted July 9, 2003 Ok, I am trying no to be negative so someone slap me. OK here is what the Onc. said. Two of the Three brain tumors are gone. The third is very very small. I think maybe the radiation and chemo will continue to work on that one. I dont see any visible tumor on the X-Ray so for now I am giving you a chemo break. Tomorrow we get a call from Albany Medical Center Cancer Unit and get the PET scan appt. If that comes up clear. They will loosley use the word "remission" until the next brain scan and then use the word remission fully if that brain scan is clear. She still coughs and he didn't seem the least bit concerned about that. He does want to see her in 1 1/2 months again. I think for new x-ray or scan but I am not sure because I was not in the room and she doesn't ask these questions. I am very happy but they always pull you back from total thrills-ville by saying we still need the PET scan to see if there is anything in the body. So yes the head is clearing out but we are now waiting on the body. the pessemist side of me says "do the freaking PET scan today so we can enjoy the summer" the optomist side of me says "Its gonna be ok" so I am continuing my novenas and constant prayers until the PET scan is done.
