Topic: Update on Mom
Good Evening -
I thought I'd share a bit of good news.
Just some quick history - my mom had the Whipple procedure on October 31st, 2012. It was rough, but she came through it.
In February she started 6 months of Chemo (gemcitabine). Just finished up in July.
She had PET/CT last week. Results show no signs of any cancer at this time. They are going to monitor her every 3 months for 2 years. She also has to keep her port in, just in case the cancer returns, they can start treatment immediately.
I have not gotten through the site yet - does anyone have any experience with this? I know CC is very aggressive. Is it best to keep the port in? Has anyone had it resurface as fast as 3 months?
Thanks for listening!
