Topic: Good news for Lauren
Lauren had an MRI yesterday. This is the first one she has had since starting chemo (Gem/Cis and 5-FU) in Sept. Her tumor that was 12x14cm.
shrunk to 10x12cm. Still a whopper but getting smaller. Her biggest small tumor shrunk .1cm. Her lymph nodes that were enlarged have also shrunk. She had a dream a few weeks back that her big tumor did shrink to the size that it is now. She has a sixth sense about things because she insisted I get her a doctor's appoinment before she was diagnosed and knew she had cancer before we were told she did. She feels really good. We are so happy the chemo is fighting her cancer. She has been lucky not to have too many bad side effects. We are taking things day by day. It makes me so happy to see her upbeat and hopeful. Love to all of you.
My comments, suggestions, and opinions are based on my experience as a caretaker for my daughter, Lauren and from reading anything I can get my hands on about Cholangiocarcinoma. Please consult a physician for professional guidance.
