Clean scan Mid August

Postby mymom » Mon Sep 10, 2018 8:52 pm

Hi all- I just realized I never posted in August that my mother had another clean scan. Her next scan is end of October. If I am correct this would be her 3 year clean mark if she is clean in October. We are so greatful she is doing well. We do think that the chemo over the years has messed up her lungs because her lung function is not great. Hasn't been for over a year and a half. Kemeny thinks she has Gerd. Pulmonologist sees nothing in her lungs. No one can figure it out after many tests. Not cancer, not COPD, not asthma, etc. She is active still and enjoys life (she is throwing me and my high school friends (we are all 45 years old, lol) a dinner party in two weeks)- it is just if she exerts herself too much she has trouble breathing. Who knows. Positive thoughts and prayers to all those fighting this crazy battle. Mom was diagnosed at stage 4 in May 2011 and doing great.

Well done your mum . Delighted to hear that . Chemotherapy has allowed my mum to become an older lady . I am grateful for that . Her lifelong neighbor is now ill and she is able to be there for her . But age brings its own issues and I often think chemo has left its mark . Not that we are complaining. Just an observation .
Take care and enjoy your night .
