Got my scan results. The good news is there are no new lesions. The bad news is that the cancer is still active in my sternum and L1 vertebrae. While I am disappointed about the activity, I am grateful that I have no pain and that many old lesions are stable. Sometimes I feel that my life is lived between scans. Anxiety and hope builds up to the time the results come in. Afterwards, treatment decisions must be made. Then life returns to “normal” for another six months. I am fortunate that my oncologist considers my lifestyle and my wishes in making treatment decisions. It makes living with metastatic cancer much easier.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers and support. Please continue to pray that my oncologist chooses the right treatment “tweak” for me.
