Sue,

Have you thought about having a port inserted?  My Mom got a power port (done under conscious sedation) and it's been a godsend.  All of her bloodwork and chemo is done through it and if you get the power port you can send contrast medium through it as well.  I think this minor procedure saved her endless sticks and pain. 

If you decide to pursue it, make sure you insist on the  POWER PORT.

Something to think about.  I'm thrilled for your good news!!!!!

Hugs,
Pam

My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.

Sue, I'm so glad to hear your good news.  I sympathize with the IV pokes. I had the same problem, so I got a Power Port.

The pokes and the jabs seem just awful, but the excellent results of the scans surely outweigh the discomort!  Yea, I love a good story before bed!

What wonderful news!!!!!  I'm SO very happy to hear your good news and am SO SO very happy for you.  Hopefully they've come up with a good solution for your IV problem...that's all you need to add to the stress!

So, now both you and Debrah are at two years!  I think you both give much reassurance and a great deal of hope to everyone here.

Sue,  I'm so glad to hear your happy news!  I haven't been on the boards so it's been a relief to see some familiar people having good news.  It gives me hope for my brother and all of you.
