Re: Thoughts on Stage IV...

When I first googled for my mom I was like oh shit. I learned quickly to google for facts, treatment options, places like this to chat and stay away from straight up statistics. They are rarely correct- that and the weather channel.

Stage 4 and still NED, but can’t make pump walk tomorrow

Hi all- hope all is well. Mom had another clean scan. Still NED. In October 2015 she had her ablation and a scan few months after that showed NED and she has been that way ever since. Kemeny now wants her on a six month schedule for scans instead of four. I’m a bit nervous to wait that long but even...

Re: Stage IV 8 year cancerversary today AND clean scan

She was dragging tree limbs. I get tired watching her- lol! Looking forward to seeing Pete and you all in Sept...

On May 13, 2011 mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. Today was her 8 year anniversary, and she had another clean scan. Great anniversary gift. This makes a bit over 3.5 years clean in her longest remission yet. She had remissions on and off but October 2015 we started having continuous clean scans...

Re: Made it almost 2 years, now it’s back. Any MD Anderson advice?

Look into if MD Anderson does the HAI pump. if you are willing to go to NYC, Dr. Kemeny at MSKCC does the HAI pump- she pioneered it. I thank her for saving my mom's life. My mom started out in May 2011 with one liver tumor and after the HAI pump, a few remissions she is in her longest remission. Sh...

As many of you probably remember, she went back and forth quite a bit with clean scans and relapses before getting to this wonderful long stretch. Diagnosed Ma...
