  • Yeeehaw all clear baby!

    Hi All,

    I had my follow up with my doctor today and my scans look good. All of the nodes have responded to the 3XBEP. I have to go back in two weeks for an LDH test because it was elevated slightly past normal but, I told my doctor I went for a 6-mile walk yesterday and my legs were sore. She said it is probably from that but wants to be sure, just in case. Other than that everything looks clear!

            Congratulations Daniel!!!!! You just made my day!!! And it's great to hear that you did a six mile walk too, that's inspiration for me to really get in gear with the exercise now that I'm done with chemo too. Also looking forward to grabbing an "all clear beer" once I (hopefully) get similar news in a few weeks.

            Congrats again!!!!!!!!!
