Topic: Clear Scans

Well, here I am, 2 months to the day since resection.  My follow up MRI & CT scans are clear!  That was really good to hear.   I've decided to go ahead and go through 3 or 4 cycles of chemo for good measure.  I know that it's no guarantee that this darn cancer won't come back, and that's frustrating, but I feel I must do it. So much for being able to fully enjoy the summer but it's a small price.  We are still planning our trips to Florida and California, so I'm not letting the chemo interfere with that fun! Thanks to everyone on this site for all the support, knowledge, information.  I don't know what I would have done without you all, or continue to do without y'all....

That is the news we all hope to hear. I am glad you are getting chemo. I didnt and now I wonder about the what ifs...and sometimes that is worse than the cancer being back.

I am so happy for you.

Re: Clear Scans

Suzannegm,

A clear scan!  Hip hip hooray!  Hip hip hooray!  San Diego is great.  That's where my daughter lives.  I don't know how high end you plan to go, but everytime I used to go there, I would stay at the Blue Sea Lodge on Pacific Beach Drive.  I'd get a first floor ocean front room with a king bed and a balcony, have my cereal out on the balcony in the morning, walk along the boardwalk or down on the beach; we'd walk on the boardwalk at night.  It's a colorful life and not hoity toity, but it's very clean.   It's close to other features.  Sea World is the most fun feature for me.  I haven't stayed there since I've had this cc so summer months might be a little spendy.  It's a beach hotel so expect some sand.  So happy about your clear scans, my dear.

Suzanne...I was hoping your travel would lead you to San Fancisco however, I can only echo Sophie's comments.  San Diego always is fun to go to.  Enjoy.
