Rants, Raves and Lunacy of Living with Hodgkins Lymphoma
Tuesday, September 4, 2007
This morning I went to Dana Farber to talk with my hodge guru/second opinion onc about my scans from earlier this month and he was concerned. He wants to move forward with the biopsy of one of the nodes in my chest. He said usually people who light up with post chemo PETs are either better or have shown improvement by the next month -- but not me, I went from 1 spot to 2! :( He even brought up the possibility of a SCT (stem cell transplant) !! Then after me and my parents left the hospital my mom picked a fight with me and we're not talking now! It's been such a shitty day, I'm going to take some Ativan and take a nap. Just thought I would share the latest news.

My chemo countdown was completed on June 14, 2007.
I've still got some spots on my chest, but have been it's just thymic rebound. On October 25, 2007 I was told that I'm officially in Remission.
My next scans are scheduled for NEVER! I'm done with scans! Only on the yearly blood work program!
Suck it cancer!
