Me and my ONC

Recommended Posts

Met with my ONC to discuss my latest CT scan prior to my chemo treatment. You need to remember that I was diagnosed 19 months ago as Stage IV and given One Year.

Is there hope.....you Betcha!!!!! :lol:

I had some minor successes and some set backs and overall was slowly losing the battle. Then on the "6th chemo regimen" we found almost miraculous results. 8) The ONC is amazed. The scan results following my sixth cycle were:

Secondary Tumor and associated Lymphs......."NED"

Previously noted spots.................................."NED"

Primary tumor continues to shrink and is one half the size noted on original DX.

Associated Primary Tumor Lymphs now normal size

Every thing else appears normal.

To what do I attribute my success.....GOD....enjoying every minute....a positive attitude that has never waned.

Will I beat it? Stats say NO.....you know what we all think about SATS!!!!

'I AM NOT A STAT" :D:D:D

Luv ya all

Jim - do you know HOW BADLY I NEEDED TO READ SOMETHING JUST LIKE THIS POST TODAY?

SIX chemo regiments? wow.

I have a call in to our minister. I want him to come out and talk to Dave. I am down in the dumps and think he can help us some in the God category and that the topotecan works for Dave!

Praise God, and thank you Jim!
