Topic: Stable!

I went to MDA this week and had a PET scan.  This is the first one I have had since changing from gem/cis to gem/xeloda and the cancer is still stable. My CA19-9 jumped up to 88 which freaked me out, but all my other numbers look good and since the scan is showing stable the doctor said not to worry about it. Of course that is easier said than done but I am very happy with stable.
