Scan results ...

Hey all.

Well, my scan results were pretty good! No sign of recurrence in liver or bowel (that's nearly 4yrs clear in those areas 😃) no pelvic or bone involvement either. Lungs looking ok (but obvs scarred) and it’s possible that the two sus areas in my right lower lobe are stable, but this will need confirming by my lung specialist.
All in all, I’m really chuffed with these results and I am hoping I may just get another break, or even better, that's that! You just never know.

Hope you’re all enjoying the bright thing in the sky today? I’ve been told it is the sun 😉.
Lots of love to you all. Marie :x::x:

Great news @mem

Just back from 2 weeks in Orlando, back to work tomorrow :(

I've got my 5 year colonoscopy next Monday, must be time for more scans and more results

mem

Thankyou @Jorton 😘.
I hope you had a lovely time in Orlando, I'm sure your boys will of done ☺️.
Five years Jorton! That is an amazing milestone! How are you feeling about your upcoming colonoscopy? Is this the second colonoscopy you've had since diagnosis? I'm only asking because I have only had one since diagnosis, my five-year point is next Feb. :x::x::x:

Jorton

Hi @mem i’m fine with the procedure just not fan of the prep.

This is just my second colonoscopy, every other check has been scans. Fingers cross for good news.

Next round of scans is May so it’s scanexiety season :x::x:

mem

Similar to me @Jorton. I'll look forward to that pleasure perhaps next Feb then!
Goes without saying that my fingers will be tightly crossed for both the colonoscopy and the scan🤞🏻. The waiting never gets any easier does it?! :x::x:
