Test Day Arrives
- February 18, 2014 – PET/CT scans
- February 20, 2014 – Labs, see Dr. Reyes, schedule next Rituxan infusion
I’ll have to admit I was anxious about getting the scan results (which is normal) because they held the secret to a long journey since I was told the cancer was active again. And, using yet another chemotherapy agent made me a little nervous. I remembered the problem I had back in November, 2007, that made a huge impact on my life.
Completing the 2 cycles of REVLIMID gave me something to cheer about and I was once again blessed that the treatments had worked. Radiation, Rituxan, and REVLIMID had all done their respective parts to stop the cancer in its tracks and give me more to look forward to in life.
Measuring The Past Year’s Work
During my last visit with Dr. Reyes I got to hear the wonderful news that the cancer was still considered to be stable disease. The plan is to keep me on the maintenance regimen I have just started.
