Hi Beth, I am so very happy for you, thank god. It is what everyone prays for--a clear scan.
You asked if anyone would not do chemo, and I wanted to respond to tell you that if it had been my husband, I would not do it.
What I will say some may not agree with but everyone should research it. I have found that everything I've read makes so much sense.
If he has no cancer in him, then he doesn't need chemo. Chemo will damage healthy cells and weaken the immune system. What you guys need to work on is changing his body. The first thing I would suggest is buying the book " beating cancer with nutrition" you've probably seen it mentioned here before. Follow it like law.
Many times you hear that people who are clear of cancer have reoccurance....it is stated that it is because people don't look for the unlaying reason which caused the cancer to begin with. Everyone who is blessed to have beaten cancer must think about changing something in them to prevent a reoccurance.
Let me give you this analogy....our bodies are 75 % fluid, including blood. Like a swimming pool our fluid must be PH balanced like the water in the pool. If it's not balanced, too much acid, the water gets dirty, green and bacteria. Well the same goes for the body...if your body is correctly balanced you should be able to prevent disease. Everything I read regarding this makes sense. They sell PH test paper for humans to check their PH, I would suggest just give it a try.
A side sorry......I have a friend who has been on medicine for years for GERD (acid reflux) and a diet according to his doctor. I told him about the PH balance theory that I learned and he has been following it for a year now and eating oranges again, tomatoes, all the things the doctor told him he could not have, and he is now off his medication and his acid reflux disease is gone. The point is that we have to find out what our bodies are like inside...and you can make changes to your diet to correct problems.
The next time you have a doctor's appointment, I would suggest to have Dave's vitamin D level checked. It has been proven that most people are deficient in this vitamin. Look at this link regarding the benefits of vitamin d and fighting cancer.

This is why studies show that people fight cancer better in the summer because of the vitamin d from the sun.
I truly believe people can prevent any reoccurance or anymore damage to cells which become cancer by changing their bodies.
If your husband eats lot of processed foods, red meat, sugar, cookies cakes all that stuff that has preservatives in it...diet products with artificial sugar then he should stop. Get that book..there are a few other great books too...by Richard B
