Topic: Clean Scan
My wife, Marina, had a full body CT scan last Thursday. Our oncology nurse called us today with great news. The scan was CLEAN!! No evidence of recurrence.
The nurse gave us a heads up: our oncologist will offer us another chemo cycle. Gemcitabine/Cisplatin cycle #6. The nurse said he likes to add a cycle or two *after* a clean scan. We will see him tomorrow (Thursday) to discuss this. I'm not sure yet what we are going to do.
I also want to mention that we reached a milestone. Tuesday marked the one year since Marina's CC symptoms showed up. April 10th, 2011 she came down with severe abdominal pain. We thought she caught a bad case of food poisoning at a friend's dinner party (little did we know).
So there you go. A clean scan at the one year mark. I hope Marina's good news give hope to others!
My very best wishes to each and every one of you.
