Hi ~ I posted this on the Stage IV but will post here too.....

Whew!! Good News.....found out my PET/CT results today and it is very good news, even better than last scan in Jan.....we are sooo relieved. The spot on my liver that was still noticeable in the Jan scan is even smaller and there is no hypermetabolic activity in the liver or any of my lymph nodes, YAY. My regular onc was on vacation so I just got the news and advised to continue with my current treatment until I see my regular onc in 3 weeks. I am tolerating my current tx of Avastin/Xeloda so hopefully I can stay on this to keep this at bay. I started tx for mets a year ago this week and I don't think my onc thought I would ever get this good of results.



Feels so good to tell people good news for a change.


Thank you all for the good wishes,

Hi Tricia--Is there no way that you could get them to read your mammogram right away?    At my breast care center they give readings immediately to women who have a history of bc.

P.S.  Tricia you're next 
 A person's greatness is the power to stand alone;to be able to make her own choice; in action,to write anew her own law; to choose her own sacrifices; run her own dangers; win her own freedom; venture her own destruction; to choose her own happiness
