Nurses talk

I still haven’t heard the official word from my doctors.  However I have now talked to 2 different nurses and have gotten some information.  The main tumor that we wanted to shrink, hasn’t changed since Nov.  So I still have two tumors and the main one is still only 20-25% vs. 50% down which was the goal.  The good news is that the PET scan showed less cancer activity within the tumor.  Also, there is no sign of disease anywhere else in my body.  The scan you from your head through your knees.  So, I don’t know the official plan yet.  I think there are 3 ways they could go:  more chemo, radiation, or attempt a surgery.  The second nurse called me today and said that Dr. Sielaff (my surgeon) wants me to have an MRI on Thursday.  So that means the surgeon wants a very close look at one is going on with that tumor.  It may mean he wants to move to some sort of surgery/procedure or something vs. going right back to chemo.  That is as much as I know at this time.  I wanted to put a quick post out to let you know where things are sitting.  Not quite sure why I haven’t heard from either doctor, but at this point it looks like things are now dependent on the next scan.  Following my MRI on Thursday I will meet with Dr. Sielaff to review my scans and what he is thinking.  I have to be honest, anything not involving chemo right now sounds great.  I am feeling great, peaceful and patient.  It’s all in God’s hands.
