Hello Pancreatic Cancer Fighters.
I've been fighting and I believe winning PC for 2 years and 2 months now. I've done 7 months of FU5---6 months of Gemzar---8 months of FU5 again. Now I'm on Abraxane/ Gemzar combo since it came out of clinical trials end of Sept.
My tumor marker has dropped down to 85. It was floating around in the 100's. ( Dec. 2010 was 3230). My cat scan result is.... panceaus no growth...nodules in all lung lobes, some growth by millileters, some shrank, some disappeared. No other new mets. So, overall my Doctor and I think this combo is controlling the cancer. So we will continue...
They gave me 3-5 months with no chemo and 18-24 months with chemo back in 12-20-2010. I believe God has been helping me everday to keep going. Lots of praying friends and family. Trying to do one or more things aday. Setting goals, making plans, enjoying life. Doing things I've always didn't get around to. Not dwelling on the cancer....hard not to do, I change my thoughts and try not to dwell.
