And foodie…step back. Suzanne is a South Carolina girl. You just cant go around claiming all the good ones for Georgia. Thats called greed.

Suzanne….thanks for sharing this. I remember when you had the resection and your sister staying in touch with the members on this board. What a joy it was to hear about your recovery from surgery, and now this fantastic news. You are giving hope to many of us. Nothing beats a success story. Congratulations.
I wish for a long, relaxing time for you.

Suzanne that is the most stupendous news! You have just given a whole planet full of hope to everyone! What a Holiday gift for yourself and others. Really, what else can one say. It’s just the best news in the world. Relax and enjoy! Did you hear that awful sound? It was me cheering;)November 20, 2009 at 12:14 am #33171ajcarman72Participant

Well, I haven’t posted in a while but I do want to share my good news, hopefully it will be good information for others on this site.
I found out today, with amazement, that there are no active tumors in my liver! As I type it, I can hardly believe it! To get to this point, I have had a liver resection in February, multiple rounds of cisplatin/gemzar, radioembolization in August of this year (which is now considered a success), and 3 rounds of FOLFOX6 chemotherapy. There is no 100% way to know if one or the other did the trick or if it’s a combination of both. I will continue with the FOLFOX chemo until, well I don’t know yet. But I will get another PET scan in 3 months.
I just want everyone to know that there is definitely hope to be had. I know this doesn’t mean I’m cured but maybe I can relax a bit and enjoy, really enjoy, my life without as much anxiety and worry as I have had for the last year (my husband and family too!).
This site means so much to me, and gave me hope when I needed it the most, and continues to give me so much knowledge and support. I only hope that I can give back as much as I’ve received.
