The report from my oncologist on the two scans I took Thursday was wonderful to hear. He said that despite my losing a month of treatment due to the surgery, many of the cancer spots are smaller. Not all, some didn’t change and in at least one place it is slightly larger, but overall he saw this as a very positive report. He’ll be scanning me again after I complete two more rounds of chemo.
My surgeon was happy, also, to see no new cancer in the area where he had operated, and told me to wear the collar until May 3, then take it off “progressively,” since the neck muscles will be weak, and to make an appointment to see him sometime in May.
I wanted to tell you all the good news right away but after the chemo that same day I was pretty well wiped out, and have been mostly sleeping since then. Knowing the treatment is having some results, though, makes this much more bearable.
Thanks again and again and again for your love and prayers.
