Another good CT scan to report


Recommended Posts

My onc finally called today to say the CT scan last week was good! 50% shrinkage of the primary tumor in my lung! I'm ecstatic!

Tomorrow I'll go get a complete copy of the radiologist's report. I'm particularly interested in what it says about the various lymph nodes, since I've got problems throughout my chest--hilar, mediastinal--but onc was upbeat. He resisted my questions on all this, and just said his experience was to see similar reduction in size as primary tumor.

I've had very tolerable side effects so far, so I'm extra grateful that my Taxol/Carboplatin regimen doesn't have to change. Thursday is the next treatment. Bring it on!

And on another upbeat note, my soulmate George and I had a barbecue bash this weekend to celebrate our 6-week-young marriage. It couldn't have gone better! The catering was fabulous, and even though everyone talked about the downpours they went through on their way to our fete, we had not a drop of rain!

Gosh, I feel blessed. Best wishes to all, and keep fighting the good fight!
