Topic: Second clean set of scans....

Well I am at CTCA in Zion, and just got the results of my PET & CT Scans and bloodwork,,,, My blood work continues to be normal, CA19-9 continues at 17 and all scans are "unremarkable" and are "normal"... "biliary ducts show no dilatation".. I began treatment at CTCA in Oct. 08 after being diagnosed at another hospital in April 08... I have had, counting this one "for good measure," seven rounds of fractionated Chemo.... Day one I get Gemzar and Trevatere (sp) Day Two I get Gemzar and Oxiplatin and on Day Three I get Oxiplatin.. Then repeat treatment in 21 days... Well for now I am "clean" and show "no evidence of cancer" and I will take that for now.. I now go to quarterly check ups... So that is my good news and I hope and Pray others will take hope, that there IS HOPE ..

God bless,
Terry
