Topic: 3 yrs cancer free

Had my MRI and no evidence of disease!! 3 yrs post hepatectomy for Intrahepatic cc.  Had chemo and radiation post resection.
See the oncologist tomorrow.
I'll let you know what the plan is, but I think I will be scan free for a year.

Take care,

Susie

Re: 3 yrs cancer free

I saw the oncologist. Not much to report, visits are pretty short when you are doing well.  I get blood work at 6 month and ct chest/abd/pelvis in one year.
I asked about my prognosis at this point and she agreed it gets better as time goes on.  I believe she said 75% recur in the first 2 years.  I think Mayo told me 90-95% recur in the first 2 -2 1/2 years.
She said I can have kids if I chose to do so, so we'll see.  It's a big decision.  I did meet with high risk OB about  6 months ago and he said I am not that high risk.  He called me medium risk.  Said my main concerns would be preeclampsia and growth restriction.  Also talked about the possibility for issues if I need a csection due to my abdominal surgeries.

I am so thankful for my 3 years of life. I am now 34 years old.  Any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thanks,

Susie

Re: 3 yrs cancer free

BTW, is the research study on here asking for participants real or is it spam?

Re: 3 yrs cancer free

Suzie...fantastic update.  My personal opinion is to go on with your life and to  make your dreams come true.

Yes, the request for participation in the research study is real; we appreciate everyone's input.
