I just left the doctor’s office and he said I looked good enough to stop chemo for now! I’m so excited!
A few clarifications: I am not “in remission” or NED (no evidence of disease). The doctor said the nodules were small enough that he had to look hard to see them on the scans. We are also waiting for a final report from the radiologist, but my doctor feels good about it right now. If we get a report back with anything major, he’ll call, but the plan for now is no chemo for the foreseeable future. I will return MD Anderson every three months for scans. If the nodules show no significant increase, I can continue to stay off chemo. If they grow a lot, we’ll start chemo again.
Honestly, this was the absolute best news I could possibly get. We are beyond thrilled. Thank you for all the prayers. They have helped immensely.
