Another Update...

Thursday, July 01, 2010

I don't have much time, but wanted all my friends online to know I am currently doing very well.

I saw an oncologist last week, and she told me that my prescribed treatment at this point is to do nothing except monitor. So, technically, I am unofficially "in remission"--No chemo! YAY! LOL

Sad that because of my kidneys I'm ineligible for the research polls... they do statistical analyses to determine whether I'd be in a high risk category for a recurrence...hm.

I do get to have blood tests every 3 months for a while, plus a few exams six months down the line to see about healing and scarring, and another screening after a year to check for possible polyps and/or recurrences... but I feel pretty good and I'm really looking forward to getting healed up enough to get part of my life back! LOL

Right now, on line access is still sketchy but I'll post whenever I can--
Thanks to all of you who have kept track of me and sent all the wonderful goodies and comments... I LOVE you all!

Kathy

    I am so happy that you are in remission. I know how that feels from a spouses side. I think your doctors are telling you right about the chemo and radiation. It is best if you can avoid both but when they are necessary they are necessary. I am just glad that they are not necessary for you. I am here thinking of you and sending my support.
    Hugs,
