Topic: 2 1/2 years cancer free
Hello everyone. I just had my 2 1/2 year post resection scan and it shows "No evidence of disease. " Those are great words.
I had my resection 5/11 for intrahepatic CC. Followed by 3 cycles gem/cis, then 6 wks radiation with Xeloda, then 3 more cycles gem/cis.
I remember when I went to Mayo, the oncologist I saw said 95% recur within 2-2.5 yrs post resection. So, I guess I should be optimistic, but it is still hard.
I am very thankful for the good results. CT scans are so stressful. I see my oncologist on Wednesday, so I'll let you know what the plan is. I think I am going to switch to MRI's. I get CT's because I get my chest, abdomen and pelvis scanned. I think I am just going to get liver MRI's at this point. I've had so much radiation, it always worries me.
Well, it is a beautiful fall day here in Portland, so I'm going to go enjoy it.
Take care everyone!
