Great news Deb...
So happy for you,
Stef: It was almost 2 yrs before my recurrance. When I was first diagnosed I was between a Stage II and III and had 19 of 21 lymph nodes positive. I was in the clincial trial for the herceptin but I didn't receive it then. I do believe that Herceptin is the miracle drug right now for bc. I am living proof of that. The side effects are minimal and I can tell you that I don't mind continuing taking it once a month for as long as needed.
Thanks everyone for your congrats. I was so afraid to believe it. I found out that the PET scan had been compared to one taken in 2004. I almost came unglued. So on Mon afternoon I called my onco office and requested that they get the ones from 2005. They called me back on Tues and said that there was NO cancer. That the PET scan in 2005 had shown that the core was dead but that there was still some activity on the outside of it. My old onco did NOT tell me this. If I had known, my mental attitude would have been so much better just knowing that the darn place was shrinking and that all of the treatments were worth it. Guess what I am attempting to say is make sure that your onco reads you what the report says. Even a little good news goes a long way.
