Melinda, what WONDERFUL news!!
I´ve been trying to read up on you and get almost breathless… We didn´t do the same treatments even though I´ve done a lot of GemCis as well. I never was resected. BUT apart from that you are one of the few ones I can feel that we have the same disease. I´m even an RN (paramedic, at work right now) just turned 46 diagnosed in April-2010. Still asymptomatic of any signs of cancerous disease (if you don´t look at scans That little detail)
Please contact me if you feel like it!
This is GREAT NEWS!
Wonderful! Happy for you!
Kris, I will never be “cured” either.
But what does cure mean? Nothing to be seen on scan or living a good life? What’s most important? Maybe we have to aim for living and staying health and skip the clean-scan-part?
At least I think that this is possible. It’s been possible for me the last 2,5 years.
At my visit to the doctor the other day (stable disease) you could really start wondering who was sick/healthy… Comparing me, the nurse and my doctor I don’t think anybody would have guessed I was the one with the bad diagnosis.
What is health, what is disease, what is CANCER? Words trying to describe something, but life is much bigger than that. Much more complicated and not so black and white. Typically humans wanting to put everything in nice little boxes, classified and easy to understand.
Here’s to us and to a nice day above earth ( November in Sweden…. dark, rain, cold…well, let’s give ita try )
YES Kris!!!! Happy for you!!
I’m SO happy for you, and for all of us! This is so wonderful.
Thank you Peggy !
My lifestile includes
*Physical excersise, a lot and hard
*Yoga and reiki healing
*Food: Organic mostly vegetarian, no gluten, no lactose, no sugar
*Complementary medicin with a lot of diferent herbs
*A very positive attitude, keeping a “normal life” and not seeing myself as sick.
We NEED stories like this! Thank you so much for sharing!
Another proof that palliative is just a word invented to try to put us in boxes, and we DO NOT belong in boxes!! Life is not black or white.
30 months now, still healthy and strong, still shrinking tumors after 37 rounds of chemo.
Still cancer without disease.
WOW so happy for you both!!
Shrinkage is wonderful!! Doesn´t matter if it´s a little or a huge – it´s proof the tumors are dying!!!!!
Love to both of you!
Thank you guys
Percy, we’re both very very tough
Yes sometimes I just get so tired of this cancerstory that I just decide to forget about it. Just live and never ever think about it again.
Gavin, he wasn’t, hahaha, how could he deny this poor sick woman such a wish… He will regret it a couple of times during training I’m sure…
Thanks Kris, I’m impressed myself
I’m on for the cruise! Whenever!
Wonderful news!! You will be just fine!
I would like to welcome you as well. I’m not so far away, i the south part. Of Sweden.
I was diagnosed 2 years and 5 months ago, almost like your husband!
I’ve been on gemox, gemsar xeloda and gemcis, 6 chemoembolizations and I feel fine. I have a lot of tumors in my liver, they hav shrunk and they have grown some also, but most important, I feel just fine!
It’s easy to say don’t be scared, it doesn’t help anyone, but sometimes you do get scared anyway. It’s ok. Life is scary sometimes!
Hoping for the best for your husband and you, he seems very strong!!!
OF COURSE you have to post this here – this is GREAT!!!! It’s working! A dead tumor is a good tumor!!
LIKE you’re being in charge!!!!
Goodgoodgood!!!!! Happy for you
