joanie55 Posted September 2, 2006 Share Posted September 2, 2006 Recently, I was deemed to be stable, after undergoing some radiation on my sacrum. Wonderful news, except now I sit, doing nothing. It's not like I don't have any cancer left, but it is stable at this time. My question is this. Should I be doing something (treatment, cyberknife, etc.) to be going after what is there, but not moving. My doctors opinion is that they do not treat stable mets. I have been stable for 16 months. I just sometimes feel like I'm a sitting duck, just waiting for something to happen. I'm sure this isn't uncommon. On the other hand, I'm so thankful to be stable that part of me says "just be happy and enjoy". I know I can go for a second, third opinion, etc., but I think I need to have it straight in my own mind firrst. Don, I think of Lucy and wonder if she's always been on treatment or if only when she needs to fight. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
