Clean Scan

Postby mymom » Wed Jun 14, 2017 4:31 pm

Hi all. Just wanted to let you know my mom had another clean scan last week. That makes 19 months remission. Diagnosed at stage IV with a liver met in May 2011, she has had approx. two separate year long remissions not counting this most recent one. This is the longest she has been clean- 19 months. In between remissions she had another liver resection, HAI pump, an ablation, and chemo. She is doing great. We are planning our next summer trip together.
I think of you all each day.
