wenna Posted November 12, 2003 Share Posted November 12, 2003 I posted this in the "Good News" section as well.. but I wanted you guys to know! As of this date, I am officially in remission!!! I want everyone here to know how much it meant for me to have a place to come to and recieve so much good will and encouragement! Lately I have become a "lurker" but still drew from your answers to others. Now only one more thing to think about.. PCI or not. At the begining, I was saying shoot yeah! a 10% more chance of it not coming back is better than no per cent. But now, after talking with the onc.. I hear side effects such as loss of memory, loss of cognitive skills and more... I am having to second guess that original feeling. I asked him if these were only temporary and he said no. I hardly have any memory left as it is.. does this mean I won't remember my name or my husband's? Cognitive skills? This is about the only thing that I still have! I've read the posts here on pci... but I am still left with... is it worth the 10% versus the quality of life that I need to have left after all is said and done? Any thoughts on this would be welcomed! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
