Topic: Clean scan
Just wanted to update everyone that last week mom and I went to Sloan and she had her 1st scan since completing 6 months of chemo and happy to reply it was CLEAN!! She had 6 months of chemo (just gem) and did well thorough out the whole 6 months. My husband and I ran a 10k with her a few weeks ago and I must mention that she beat us both!! So we have the next 3 moths with no chemo and no cancer!! Hopefully many more to follow.
If it were not for finding posts on this forum by my dear friend Cathy and a man named Wayne Parsons we would of never found Dr. Chapman who ultimately saved my mother by preforming a resection that 5 doctors in our local area and 1 at a major cancer hospital in Boston said was impossible!
On June 19th 2012 my mother was diagnosed given a year to live with chemo less than a year with out.
2nd 3rd and many more opinions should be sought out when battling aggressive cancers....forget bedside manners! Many people frustrate me beyond words when they say "I LOVE my Dr." And they gave me hope.... Listen hope is great....thankfully our doctors had no bedside manner in CT which is why we continued to search for other opinions. I am horrified to think what would of happened if they were super nice....I would never of been hard pressed to search further.
