Had tests this week and saw oncologist today to get results. I went in expecting to be hung in the morning, but it seems the reports of my demise were somewhat exaggerated.
Test results show I am in the clear for now. So two more reduced intensity chemotherapy treatments (one next Wednesday) then a program of monitoring – indefinitely or unless symptoms recur.
I’m not cured (there is no cure) and at the level of refinement of the tests I can’t say it has gone completely. But it has clearly been knocked down to a level which should give me some reasonably solid respite (though impossible to say whether this will be measured in months or years) from treatment. Also means that I don’t have to contemplate an alternative especially vile kind of treatment involving stem cells.
Best news I have had in the two years since initial treatment began!
You could raise a cup of kindness, or its nearest equivalent, to me, wherever you are. Your kind support over these two difficult years has been important and much appreciated.
