Post Surgery Ct Scan

I just had my first CT Scan after surgery five months ago and everything was NED. My surgeon was extremely pleased as he explained and showed me my scans. I was then told that I could see my oncologist and have my port removed for the surgeon feels I will no longer need it. He made my day and possibly my future. I still will receive CT Scans every four months for the next two years and so on, but what a relief . I thank everyone for their prayers and encouragement over the past year. Phil A.

Thanks Pat and Steve for its people like you that give me the encouragement and hope to keep fighting this beast. Tha beast has met its match. The Doctors told me while in the hospital that I had an attitude that was unreal about having cancer. I have been to hell and back fighting as a disabled veteran with problems related to Vietnam for over thirty years, and just diagnosed with Hypoglecemia and Peripheral Neuropathy related to Agent Orange exposure. I will win this EC battle, I promise. Thanks Again,   Phil A

Congratulations and best wishes as you continue to overcome "the beast". Good work!  I am a 4 year survivor and it is so good to learn of others who are successful. I am very happy for you and continue to pray for folks on this board.  I am down to PET/CT scans every 6 months and in February I will go to once a year.

I originally was stage 2A and then someone in the oncology dept. wrote a letter for me for another Doctor I will be seeing and it stated Stage 3. I went wild and called the surgeon who stated that sometimes mistakes are made when staging. I was a 2AN0M0 and I guess now a 3N0M0. I really do not care about the staging for no cancer was found after the surgery in any of the pathology reports. I hope that answered your question.  Phil A.
