Finally! Some good news!


Recommended Posts

I had my onc. appointment today. I have been going through treatments for 10 months now always with the same results. "Everything looks the same" I know this is good, but having suffered through so much chemo, I would like to see a little progress.

Well today I got the good news. My tumor has shrunk! The radiologist report says that the tumor has shrunk by 31%. Yea! It gives me the strength to get through the rest of the treatments, you know, to see that something is working.

I also received my 5th chemo treatment today. All went well, once I got a good IV. Seems like it always takes 2 sticks to get it right anymore. My veins are pretty much shot!

Well, I just wanted to share the good news with all of you. Thanks for listening!

Terrific news, Ann!

Would you consider having a port put in to spare your veins? They are not only used for chemo and iv, but for blood drawing as well. I know it saved me a lot of grief, as by the end of chemo my once beautiful veins were pretty well shot.

Congratulations again on the shrinkage!! May it all be good news from here.
