Topic: All is clear after 13 months
Blood work and CT scan all clear and normal. CA19-9 is a 7. Best of all, I feel great and very healthy these days.
I had surgery 13 months ago, chemo for 12 weeks (Xeloda & Gemzar) and radiation, with Xeloda, for 6 weeks. Side effects, mostly acid reflux from the radiation, were gone a couple weeks after treatments ended.
I can't say enough about the great surgery/surgeon at Johns Hopkins and my local oncologists who did the follow up treatments. I was blessed by two really great teams of providers.
There is hope with this cancer. It is so wonderful to read everyone else's stories. Very encouraging! Blessings and good health to all!
