Colorectal 3A - 4 year scan results - NED!

Postby sbrainbolt » Thu Mar 31, 2016 9:39 am

I have been lurking off and on for the past year or so, but really have relied on this forum for support and information the last 4 years and can't express how grateful I am to have this resource!

I had my annual scans and 6 month blood work on March 26th. Met with the Oncologist on Monday March 28th who was all smiles walking into the room. All lung nodules are stable back to 2012, likely benign. Liver cyst is gone, kidney cysts are stable. CEA 1.3

No evidence of reoccurrence or spread! One more year and then I am considered "cured". This is fantastic news. I hope others out there will see my post and gain some hope!
DX 1/12 50 yrs
LAR 2/12 CR 3A T1N1M0
chemo 3/12- 9/10/12 FOLFOX, issues with platelet counts every 4th treatment
CEA normal
CT 3/15 stable lung nods since 1/2012 NED.
SBO kinked small bowel 10/13 - LAPRO surgery to fix
yrly scans now
09/25/2017 - Graduated to the Survivorship Clinic at MDA! Cured!!!
