Very good news....Congrats!
Happy new year to all of you.
I went for my second CT on Dec. 21st scan since finishing 3x BEP at the end of August 2009.
My results are clear! My oncologist told me that "my scan is fine...no area's of concern"
Neither do I have raised tumor markers in my blood, but then again, my markers never did rise.
So, 4 months since finishing chemo I am clean and now 6 months since this whole nightmare started. Thanks for all your support and advice guys.
All the very best to all of you.
