fillise Posted May 23, 2007 Share Posted May 23, 2007 Took mom to the Onc. to ge her scan results today. The primary tumor in her right lobe has shrunk from 3.2 cm to 2.3. There is no other evidence of disease and no additional mets. The scan of her spine showed the old mets gone ("killed" was the word he used.). So the good news is that mom gets a break from chemo. She has had four rounds and the Dr. said that he wants to give her a break so that when the tumor begins to grow again she will be strong enough for the next round of treatment. Of course we would have liked for it to be gone completely, but I'll take the shrinkage. She will be scanned again in August (3 months), but for now she has the summer off! We are happy! Thanks for all of your prayers and encouragement. Now we go into keep it stable mode. Susan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
