SandraL Posted July 22, 2008 Share Posted July 22, 2008 First of all apologies to those of you who were worried about me. I have not been posting or reading PM's for some time. I was quite down to say the very least and had convinced myself that it had spread like everywhere...and then was away for the weekend and actually did have some fun. And thanks to those of you who sent me prayers and positive thoughts. They worked I think. Anyhow, I had my CT scan last Thurs and got my results today. I have never been more anxious re results. First of all my lungs. They continue to be clear and the one funny spot is even cleaner now so that just must be scar tissue. So my lungs are in good shape and if you heard me yap you would believe it. Secondly, I have no progression anywhere else. Finally, my biggest concern was my spine mets. I have had radiation on them awhile back as well as 2 rounds of chemo. Well, in my doctors words, my back is a huge mess. She thinks most of it is just scar tissue and from me overdoing it physically...but it is hard to tell re the cancer. It for sure has not gotten any worse. But I have and continue to be in so much pain. So she has now referred me to a neurosurgeon and thinks maybe he can "take it out" and put in some good bone stuff. First I have heard of "taking it out" and I like those words. So I think on balance that is pretty good news (WAY better than my mind had dreamed up). I am just plain relieved and think it will take a few days for this to sink in after what I have put myself through this past week. And I am now mixing a glass of good red wine with my 3rd alimta chemo cocktail that I received this afternoon. I know it is only Tuesday but would be grateful if someone opened the bar!
