You have been waiting for this...

Saw the oncologist today, he gave me "as close to a clean bill of health as you can have." Which, for someone who had cancer 6 month ago, I guess thats good. He told me to exercise more, cause I've gained back everything I lost in chemo. Darn it! But whatever. Cancer free! Now get in shape again. I did mention the numb, white fingers. He said "you aren't the first person to have that." Then he agreed that it was from the Bleomycin and was "Rayuand's phemonomon." Will it go away? He shrugged and said "it might." He also spent some time going over all the life quality issues, and he asked about wanting kids. I guess he was going to start talking about what chemo may or may not have done to me, but I headed that off with "No." LOL Oh yeah, I have a small (2 cm diameter) lump of scar tissue in my chest. It will never go away. But it hasn't grown since my last CT, and if it was active it would be getting bigger. So the fact is stayed the same size means its just residual scar tissue.

I guess since you all know all my medical history, I'll keep going. I go next week to another doctor to see about the thing on my ovary. I had an ultrasound on the 25th, that was interesting. So after the ultrasound, we now know that "yup, there looks to be something there." So I'm going to see yet another doctor about that. Joy joy.

I'm off the hook from the oncologist until the end of July. Then more CTs, he wants a neck, chest, and abdomen next time. I've avoided abdomen since last June. That means I have to drink the nasty stuff. Yuck!

Well anyway... thats it for now. Time to go biking!

We are still with you. I know that you are thankful for the good reports and that you are concerned about the unknown. You take the good and try to balance it with the trying times. In the end, all you can really hope (no pun intended)for is to wind up on the good side. You may not be able to look at all the good things that are happening to you and realize how good they really are. We tend to take many of those things for granted because we expect good things to happen. When something less than "good" happens,it really jumps at us. When you get a moment to reflect, count up all the good things that have happened with you. Count up all the bad things. The good memories will be at least 20 to 1 more than the unpleasant. You have a great gift-inner strength. Use it. The pipes are calling. See ya! hicup

Good luck on your upcoming tests. Hopefully it is just a cyst. Also congratulations of the good check up.
